Abstract:

The search for talent is one of the great challenges facing organisations and, as globalisation increases competition, strong leadership becomes even more important for businesses in the future. Central to success or failure will be the people who lead these companies; those who are currently in senior roles and those who are being primed for future leadership positions. With this in mind the Institute of Leadership and Management set out to explore what employers want their company's future leaders to look like. We surveyed 50 [human resources] HR professionals from commercial organisations, the majority employing over 1,000 people. We asked them what skills they need to possess, the personal characteristics essential for success and how they develop these qualities in the people they view as leaders.
