The way organizations operate, employees work, and leaders lead is evolving in response to customer experience, new industry disruptors, globalization, and innovations in technology. These forces demand adaptive leaders who are prepared to pivot direction quickly and lead their organization to do the same. The speed at which leaders and their employees can do so is defining winners and losers of this new era.
