Whether it is a lack of willingness from existing leaders to advocate those who might ultimately take their roles, complacency about the current team or market, or more likely a lack of reliable data to present to the Committee, this is a fundamental problem that Armstrong Craven are helping CHROs to overcome.
Recent global shocks have highlighted the need for new skills in leadership. This includes new skills being sought in the Boardroom as digitisation has impacted sectors in new ways, an ever-increasing focus on improving representation, and replacing leaders whose management styles have been shown to be outdated and incompatible with hybrid working.
Almost every organisation now needs to have different people in their leadership team, with new skills and the ability to react to and navigate through change.
