“The leadership shortage is one of the biggest barriers to growth, prosperity and sustainability of organizations. We are always in a state of war – the war for talent has been a greater predictor against the war for business.

In fact, hiring smart talent for unique, time defining & critical roles is the top challenge facing organizations worldwide, with 86 percent of companies rating it “urgent” or “important. This talent becomes even more pressing as ageing leaders retire and millennials assume leadership roles with skillsets that didn’t exist say five years back. However, poor leadership decisions have proven to be a key contributor to both low engagement and low productivity in the workplace.

Effective succession planning through tech enabled and data driven approach is the missing element. Ensuing Covi-19 and Pandemic, clearly demarcated the importance of right leadership at the top, with many organisations converting chaos in to an opportunity while others left exposed with their fault lines given their inability to adapt to change with agility.

As the world normalises and we all find our own, what does this whole experiences teaches us? Are we better enlightened, learned and prepared to lead our workforce and businesses in to the future? What should be our succession strategy of the future to ensure we win the war for talent to succeed in business?
