3 Pillars of competence for Thought Leaders in the corporate era

In a scenario in which leadership profiles emerge and stand out with very different characteristics, an essential figure has emerged to successfully navigate the turbulent waters of the business world: the Thought Leader. This new profile of professionals not only masters their field but goes beyond it, actively shaping the business landscape with their innovative and insightful ideas.

They cast long shadows over individuals whose brilliance shone in less conventional arenas. This strict adherence to experience served us well in a more predictable era. Today's dynamic environment presents challenges that require a new currency of executive leadership in 2024.
