What do the top companies have in common when facing an environment of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity? Aon, an exclusive global partner of YPO, reveals how outstanding companies keep their edge in its Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders report.
The main common denominator is an unrelenting focus on supporting and enhancing leadership. Some highlights from the report include that top companies:
- Have self-aware leaders who understand their personal strengths and weaknesses, and use this information to become more effective leaders of others.
- Build resilience in their leaders through stretch experiences, encouragement and support for taking risks in innovating, learning from failing quickly, and exposure to multiple perspectives and ideas.
- Identify and build engaged leaders who connect strongly with their people, connect their teams more strongly with the organization’s purpose and mission, are both mobilizers and stabilizers, and are ambidextrous influencers who can appeal as needed both to minds and to hearts.
