Over the last ten years, starting with Enron in 2002 through to Barclays and News Corp in 2012, many organisations both large and small have faltered. Corporate culture as a direct result of poor leadership is often highlighted as the key contributory factor. Yet what causes this and how can it be prevented?
Add to this the deepest and most prolonged economic downturn in a generation and the reality is, that the business landscape has changed forever. Your competitors, customers, suppliers are all affected by these new market conditions and are having to find innovative ways to lower their costs whilst growing their market share. As a result, it has become increasingly vital for corporations to select and develop key leaders that:
- are seen as more effective and satisfying to work for.
- develop people to higher levels of individual and group performance.
- have a strong, positive impact on individual, team and company performance
