Business and public service leaders who are fully prepared to run global organizations are in short supply and in demand more than ever before. Many organizations are concerned that their "next-in-line" group of talent may not be ready for a volatile-uncertain-complex-ambiguous (VUCA) world!

This VUCA world of work is certainly changing at a pace that requires new ways of thinking and new ways of operating, including how we manage talent and resources. 

It is a mistake to believe that some individuals are born with superior leadership talent and that we simply need to identify and rank them to fill our talent pipelines. Leaders are developed, and global leaders need experiences that challenge them in their growth.

Consider the perspective of those at Accenture and Qualcomm.

Will your company be ready? Does your company offer a leadership development program? Is it only for the high potentials?
