For today’s executives, the ability to develop a successful business strategy is no longer enough. As we emerge from the recession into an ever more hyper-competitive business environment, the most successful organizations will be the ones with leaders who can create a compelling vision—and who can convey that vision to customers and employees.
Thiis new reality was reflected in the key findings of 2014 Trends in Executive Development: A Benchmark Report. A wide range of executives and human resource leaders, including presidents, senior vice presidents, chief learning officers, and heads of executive and leadership development, reported that the ability to create a vision— and convey it to others—is now the single most important capability needed in
the emerging generation of leaders.
