Forbes publishes article about School for CEOs research

5 January 2017

Roger Trapp, leadership writer, has contributed an article to Forbes following his review of the School for CEOs' latest research, Future-proofing the CEO: Why Chief Executives need to adapt in an unpredictable world.  

In his article, CEOs need to prepare for 'dynamic and changing future,' Roger highlights the changing priorities of business people, which are strongly influenced by what is happening around them in the moment, as well as the longer term demands.  He also references the increasing demand on CEOs and leaders today stating, 'the greatest challenge for the modern-day leader – whether in the public or private sector, in government or in business – is the sheer range of issues that need to be understood and managed.'
