Global leadership is under threat and understandably faces criticism, due to: a dearth of definitions of what leadership is or does; a struggle therefore to pass ‘it’ on (i.e., a lack of trust in leadership training & development); a great many underwhelming leaders; and growing worries about the cost of leadership derailment, exacerbated by hubris and overdrive. This keynote will explore ways in which coaches can make important differences in these domains, presenting new research on coaching effectiveness backing this up.
