Leadership

Cognitive science professor Richard Boyatzis told delegates at the annual CIPD beano in Harrogate that 70-80% in management jobs were not adding value. Meanwhile, Mind Gym Chief, Octavius Black, told the conference that "turbulent times call for a different kind of leadership: courageous leadership. Most of our leaders were graduate trainees the last time the economic clouds looked this dark. The skills that have worked for growth are very different from those needed to steer our organisations through the storm ahead." Watch your backs everyone.
