07 Mar 10 Must Have Capabilities for Business Leaders
Leadership Development that is on point with current needs and that is focused on improving business performance, sounds like an ideal but it is right where we do most of our advisory work. Over the last fifteen years, we have been part of a global group that believes that simplifying the complex in business is where business leaders need to be, and that working like this delivers tangible results.. Add to this, a real focus of working on real, live, business issues while learning and we have a powerful combination of leadership development that improves business results.
Staying on point is nothing more than asking business leaders about their needs and responding to them.
At 1st Executive, we have always believed collaboration is key.

We have also been part of Mindshop International for over 15 years. Mindshop is an Australian owned international network of business advisors and has just published its annual Business Leader Survey results.
