Fast-evolving markets and heightened competition are the norms in today’s global economy, where very few companies, and their results, stand out. This competitive advantage often results not from the most ingenious product design, the best marketing strategy, or state-of-the-art production technology, but rather from the effective leadership of a company. Whilst many organizations recognize the importance of managing their work force effectively, it is alarming how often firms and managers fail to do so.
What is more, many organizations are now replacing traditional pyramidal and hierarchical organizational structures with flatter managerial models. Under these circumstances, teams are becoming the principal axis around which most processes pivot. Therefore, the success of an executive lies in his or her capacity to develop and lead herself and her team effectively.
