The biggest lesson learned from the COVID pandemic is that “business as usual” is no longer an option. As Einstein said “The thinking it took to get us into this mess is not the same thinking that is going to get us out of it.”
Leadership must step up and lead their companies into the new “Promised Land”, but there is no road map.
Having studied and assessed leadership talent for 50 years, Fulcrum Search Science Inc. has examined the leadership requirements for future sustainable business success.
2 Greatest Leadership Requirements:
- Leaders need to be able to continually transform their companies to be more resilient and agile.
- Leaders need to adapt their style to foster greater employee engagement, loyalty and productivity, especially with remote teams, hybrid work models and new employees.
Without these 2 mission-critical leadership qualities, organizations may be able to survive, but they won’t be able to thrive.
We are pleased and proud to be introducing a new focused service in our executive search practice: Fulcrum LeaderSource©. Using our proprietary Critical 5+5© candidate assessment methodology and leveraging objective psychometric assessment data in partnership with Caliper, we are able to focus on and quantify our candidates’ experience and success in:
