Organizations currently spend more than $365 billion on leadership development worldwide. Yet, leaders still feel unprepared to address today’s complex business challenges. In fact, our most recent research—where we interviewed 22 leaders across 16 industries in 5 countries—validated these findings. We learned that leaders are concerned that they lack the tools and skills to navigate the increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) in today’s business world.
Existing leadership programs, frameworks, and tools no longer provide what leaders need to keep pace in the midst of today’s constant and extreme change. As a result, leaders have no clear roadmap for addressing complex business dilemmas. Focusing on financial profits is no longer enough for organizations to thrive in the long-term. A 2016 PwC study found that 76% of leaders realize that business success extends beyond increasing financial profits.
