Leadership is key in every company. And leaders and companies always need to be identifying the next leaders. We also need to have a good understanding of what these next leaders need in order to be effective.
Executive Development Associates surveyed over 460 senior level managers and leaders from different organizations. They identified the five (5) areas that need to be addressed for the next generation of leaders:
1. Ability to create a vision and rally others around it
2. Ability to attract, develop and retain the quality of talent needed for success
3. Ability to inspire
4. Ability to deliver results
5. Ability to manage the stress and demands of leadership
Is your organization facing this same dilemma? What skills do you see your company needing as leadership is transferred to the next generation?
And what are you doing about it?
