Full Report on Sustainable Leadership

Sustainable Leadership for a Post-Digital Age – A unique study on Leaders in Ireland today.

Keynote Speaker | Carolan Lennon, Country Leader at Salesforce Ireland.

While we cannot predict the future, we can shape it.

Understanding the realities of leadership in Ireland today, the perceptions, the practices and the most important skills needed to succeed, is vital to sustaining Ireland’s current Leaders through these extremely challenging times. Importantly, through their collective experiences and wisdom, we can better form the next generation of Ireland’s leaders.

ICBE and Kemmy Business School are delighted to invite you to the launch of this unique study on Leaders in Ireland today.

This research captures the zeitgeist of these unprecedented times. Leaders are navigating these new frontiers with powerful honesty. Findings show fundamental changes occurring in the way leaders now lead. A more holistic, human-centred perspective is prevailing, showing all the hallmarks of a new era of sustainable leadership emerging in Irish organisations.
