Leading the enterprise is a powerful — and humbling — experience. Top leaders play an enormous role in the success of organizations. And, they need to excel in new ways. The challenges of leading at the top are far-reaching, complex and essential to get right. Based on CCL's extensive research, leaders at the top take on:
Business operations, the heart of all other challenges.
Strategic issues, setting and realizing vision, direction and goals.
Managing change, both in the day-to-day and in the long-term.
Boundary spanning, leading across levels, silos, cultures, backgrounds and interests.
Talent management, ensuring the current and future talent pipeline.
Individual impact, understanding and adjusting leadership style in effective ways.
