With global change on the horizon, leadership is certainly the hot topic right now. As organisations strive to identify candidates for key strategic roles, how can you be confident that they will add real value to an organisation? A period of change offers both opportunities and threats and it is essential that the right strategic hiring decisions are made.
First and foremost, there are considerable differences between being the boss and being a leader. A leader is far more than just the head of an organisation. A leader innovates, inspires others to perform and drives change for the better. A leader empowers an organisation to realise aims and aspirations and provides stability and guidance during times of change. In addition, a dynamic leader will ensure an organisation can not only attract the best talent, but is also able to retain those already playing a crucial role in its current success.
In a time of change, it is imperative that the next wave of leaders have a clear vision and can inspire and motivate staff to achieve more.
