New PwC, Harthill, OSCA report
A report on using the Harthill Leadership Development Framework for transformational leadership has been published by PwC Consulting practice. This report was written in collaboration by Jess Leitch and Mark Dawson of PwC, David Rooke of Harthill and Richard Wilson of OSCA.
The hidden talent: Ten ways to identify and retain transformational leaders, shows how – even while organisations are grappling with rapid technological change, stalled growth, global restructuring and the need for forward-thinking – less than one in 10 have the capabilities, attributes and mind sets to lead transformational change and solve wicked problems.
The research behind the report, conducted through a survey of 6000 European professionals’ leadership capabilities by Harthill Consulting, finds that only 8% currently have Strategist leadership capabilities. The good news is that leaders develop thorough distinct stages, or types, towards becoming true strategists.
The work of Strategists, the report proposes, is underpinned by inquiry-based experimentation. They see both the vision and detail, employ positive language and exercise power courageously. They also understand the complexity of the environment in which they’re working and are able to employ passionate detachment. Though Strategists reside in every grouping, the largest proportion of ‘Strategist’ leaders are found in women and in those over 55.
