Leadership development 'in the balance'

Leaders are facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities. This has become particularly true in the recent pandemic... how do you lead in an era of constant change and uncertainty? As we continue to work in virtual/remote environments, what are the capabilities and attitudes leaders need to instil confidence and engage the workforce? Also, what does this mean to the way leaders are developed, the skills we now expect from them, and who is considered to be a leader? We've identified six pairs of traits that leaders, developing leaders, or those leading work initiatives should seek to balance in a rapidly changing business world.

We have over 25 years' experience developing successful leaders and are recognized as a global Top 20 Leadership Training Company.
