2018 is a challenging year for leadership development. Industries are disrupted, markets are shifting and changing. So are the C-suites and leadership teams. What we see happening is that forward-thinking CEOs apply the systems view. They embrace purpose to achieve positive value creation in a broader context, connecting their organisations with society and the environment. In the new C-suites, dynamics are shifting to a more integrative leadership model based on systems thinking and effective partnerships. At The Natural Step Germany, we share the thoughts of Russell Reynolds published on trends in the C-suite. There is a definite shift towards flatter hierarchies and a more egalitarian work environment. New leadership styles will adopt a more group-minded approach without compromising on effectiveness and performance. At The Natural Step Germany, we are passionate about helping executives to find the right balance in order to create a culture that is open, collaborative and diverse.
