So what is keeping CEOs up at night?  And what do they see as essential to creating a high performing organization and driving profitability in the coming year? The Conference Board CEO Challenge® 2015 survey finds CEOs are focused on an array of issues from talent development, to rapidly changing customer behavior, solving the puzzle of creating an innovative culture, and achieving the holy grail of better organizational alignment.

In this webcast, discover the 10 big picture global trends that emerge from this year’s CEO responses and learn not only which strategies they intend to use to meet their challenges (hint: they are not the same in Shanghai, New York, London, or Sao Paulo) but also some of the disconnects between the CEO view and those of functional executives, especially in the leadership development field.

All registrants will receive a complimentary copy of the report. For more resources on this topic, please visit
