What skills will new leaders need in order to survive and thrive? Dominic Barton explains.
Change is the only constant, and that’s not changed since Heraclitus first said those words 2,500 years ago. Sure, every generation thinks it’s the last, but the scale and pace of technological, economic, political, climatic and social change shaping the world today are hitting new heights.
