Bob Anderson, Founder and CEO of The Leadership Circle, unveiled his Leadership Imperative in May 2011 at a leadership conference in Sydney, Australia. “As the effects of globalization set in, leadership development must keep pace with the rate of change.” According to conference organizers, this call is making demands of us that are unprecedented in history. Bob’s keynote addressed the following question: “Are we evolving our conscious practice of leadership at a pace which meets the escalating complexity of our times?”
Flexibility, agility, and innovation are qualities most leaders and organizations want to acquire or amplify. Since these dimensions are not labeled as such in Leadership Circle Profile reports, it may seem that our assessments are not as effective as they might be at helping leaders and organizations make significant improvements in these areas.
Quite the contrary.
