CEOs UNDER PRESSURE - Towards Better Capitalism - WEF
People don’t believe in capitalism anymore. Society demands CEOs not only pay attention to shareholders’ concerns but see beyond and include societal concerns into their agenda as well.
POLITICAL ACUMEN is a leadership necessity
Organisation politics: it has a negative connotation. People think it is something dirty. Most people hate it and prefer to avoid it. Yet, there are four levels of politics in organizations: minimally, moderately, highly, and pathologically political organisations. It is part of our everyday business life. Therefore, I think political proficiency is not a choice for leaders, but it’s a necessity that can be improved.
CRAFTing the Future
Today globalisation generated a new demand for leaders. They need to expand their leadership capacity of being able to not only create a vision but to create the future as well. I believe one of the keys to competitiveness is how much creativity and innovation potential an organisation has.
