It is only by understanding where the organisation is going and then defining the specific capabilities its leaders need to possess to succeed in that environment, that a business can deliver on its overall business strategy and goals.

Recent Hudson research highlighted a sizeable disconnect across APAC: 90% of HR leaders said leadership was very important to businesses yet only 54% of organisations actually had their own clearly articulated leadership strategy. Even those with a strategy and development programs to build leadership capabilities often miss key details that impact the ultimate success of those programs.

Gender diversity in the workplace: Are we all just asking the wrong question?

Gender diversity in the workplace: Are we all just asking the wrong question?
“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse.” So said Henry Ford on why he used his own initiative to develop the mass produced automobile – and the same logic can be applied to the issue of gender diversity across Australian organisations.
