Leading in a disruptive age

'What got you here is not going to get you there': this quote from Marshall Goldsmith could have been written for the 2020s. From the global coronavirus health pandemic to social and political division; from the normalisation of remote working to the coming of age of artificial intelligence, change is at a speed and level most HR and business leaders have never experienced before. In this series we ask a variety of leading academics, HR directors and thought leaders what leadership behaviours will be needed to succeed in an era characterised by business disruption. Produced in partnership with management consultancy 10Eighty.
