CEO Challenge 2014 &

The 2014-2015 Global Leadership Forecast



Monday, May 19, 2014 | ITC Gardenia | Bangalore


Wednesday, May 21, 2014 | InterContinental | Singapore

No question is more critical in a VUCA world: are your leaders ready? In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world, every company is at risk of failing to deliver – on growth, customers, products and services, and employees. Effective leadership at all levels is critical to success.

The Conference Board publishes The CEO Challenge® report annually on the top challenges faced by global CEOs. Yet one question remains: Are the leaders of our organizations equipped to meet these challenges head-on?

In these briefings we will review the findings of the CEO Challenge 2014 report, in addition to a new landmark study conducted by The Conference Board and DDI: The 2014-2015 Global Leadership Forecast. Over 12,000 leaders, 1,500 HR professionals and 2,000 organizations participated in the research. Respondents spanned multiple geographies, generations, industries, leadership levels, and genders.

Questions this briefing will answer include:

  • How prepared are leaders to address each of the CEO Challenges?
  • Which combination of leadership skills is most critical to meeting these challenges?
  • What human capital practices will drive quality improvements in your leadership bench?
  • Why is the term 'HR partnership' obsolete and what new role should you be playing?
  • Is Centralized, Decentralized or Mixed the best bet for a successful multinational talent management implementation?
  • What are the key differences in leader development approaches between countries, generations and gender?

Participants at this briefing will receive an executive summary of The Conference Board CEO Challenge® 2014 report and the full 2014-2015 Global Leadership Forecast report.
