About this book

Leadership development aims to disrupt leaders’ behavioural and thought patterns. However, for many decades leadership development has not changed significantly: nobody seems to be disrupting the disrupters. It needs to evolve if leaders are to deal successfully with the disruptive challenges they face today – such as climate change, global health emergencies, digitization, an ageing workforce and the different expectations of millennials and Generation Z.

This book reflects critically on the future of leadership development and what is missing in traditional approaches. It is based on interviews with leadership development suppliers, HR professionals and leaders, as well as the authors’ industry experience. This book provides practical recommendations for how leadership development needs to change to support leaders as they navigate a volatile and uncertain world.
