IRC Global Executive Search Partners recently held its Americas Regional Meeting in Miami, USA. IRC Partners and their CXO-level guests conducted a C-Suite roundtable discussion focussing on “Leadership Transformation: Strategies in a Disruptive, Uncertain & Digital World” to explore the demands on corporate leaders of the future.

Our partners and guests all agreed that technology, digitalization, speed of change and new generations of employees with new thinking and working patterns make today’s business world more complex and challenging than ever before. And, all feel the pace of change is continually increasing.

How to manage this VUCA environment and come up with winning formulas? Delegates agreed that leaders of tomorrow, in order to succeed, need to be agile and curious learners who provide empowering leadership with clear vision, purpose and genuineness, and demonstrate their cultural competence.

People also agreed the human factor remains an irreplaceable essence and those who embrace new technologies will gain a competitive advantage. The initiative of the IRC Americas partners is the last in a series of events organised by IRC also in APAC and EMEA to understand the specifics of individual regions and benchmark them with each other.

Tom Berray, the IRC Americas Regional Leader, comments: “We had lively and informative discussions between our IRC partners and our executive-level guests around this critically important topic of leadership transformation. We are grateful for our guests’ participation in looking at this topic regionally and globally.”
