Three of four executives do not feel that their company's senior leadership team has the right mix of skills to generate growth in 2012.
It's not just rank-and-file employees who are having trouble meeting their company's needs. C-Suite executives are also finding it challenging to live up to the demands put upon them as leaders, according to a recent survey from the Korn/Ferry Institute. The vast majority of corporate executives doubt whether their CEOs and other C-level executives are able to grow the business, the survey finds. "As the global economy moves to more stable ground, it's increasingly important for organizations to consider how their leadership and talent strategies support their business strategies," says Ana Dutra, CEO of Korn/Ferry's leadership and talent consulting division. "Do organizations have the right leaders in the right roles? Are they looking to the future and rigorously identifying and developing their next-generation leadership pipeline? Our survey shows there is significant work to be done." An estimated 250 executives from 40 countries took part in the research. For more about the survey, click here.
