Damien O’Brien, Egon Zehnder Chairman, was recently interviewed by Forbes India and talked about what makes successful leaders, the evolving role of company boards, and how they identify leaders.
What strikes me is the way he described the evolution of sought-after characteristics in CEO searches…
For years we looked at experience as the basis for predicting future success. What we have come to understand is, in today’s world, given the speed of change, given the complexity of leadership, it is actually the potential and the ability to adapt and learn, and engage with diverse constituents that are actually more important ingredients than specific sectoral experience. And so we are looking to identify individuals with these characteristics.
