Have you ever thought about why companies have difficulty promoting the right people? Is it that they do not know how to recognize talent and potential? Or are we looking for the wrong things? Our expectations are too high. Do we want leaders to be superheroes who are good at everything? And what about the people that get promoted? How can we better support them, so they succeed? In this episode, we talk about leading in the new economy and what kind of leadership we need.
