Korn Ferry: CEOs are the New Courageous Leaders
Andrés Tapia, senior client partner at Korn Ferry, discusses how, in a world with such instability and uncertainty, it’s more important now than ever for leaders to step up. Citing the lack of elected officials who are not rising to the occasion of paving a courageous path for the world, Tapia points out that the CEOs of corporations have been leading the charge against such things as discrimination and championing diversity and inclusion.
Tapia lays out the following four-point plan corporate leaders can use to step up amidst global turmoil:
- Figure out what you believe and stand for.
- Provide guidance for the conversation.
- Emphasize empathy.
- Lead by example.
