Senior Exec Priorities 2018

The results are in from xquadrant's 2018 Organisational Leadership Survey.

In the spring and summer of 2018 xquadrant surveyed over 150 senior business leaders in order to understand their top business goals and the organisational challenges that were putting the brakes on their ability to execute.  

The results are fascinating and we’ll review them in this short series:

  • In this first article, we’ll have a look at who completed the survey and we’ll make some high-level observations around the priorities of these leaders
  • In the second article, we’ll dive into the specific organisational and people challenges faced by executives in two key contexts: scaling and transformation
  • We’ll then take a practical look at the top 3 most transformative/impactful solutions identified by execs in each context (scaling and transformation) - and provide pragmatic implementation advice

The liberating leader: a manifesto

Our partner, *GiANT Worldwide*, coined the term ‘liberating leader’ to represent the kind of leader who is truly worth following. This article describes what a Liberating Leader is, why it’s so important, and what you’re ‘signing up to’ if you aspire to being a Liberating Leader.

Our (not-so) hidden agenda

Sure we can talk strategy, or value propositions, or tech-sector trends or organisational development. We love that stuff at xquadrant!

But there’s a deeper heartbeat at xquadrant. It’s to help leaders build amazing teams and organisations that accomplish great things.

In fact, we can go further. It’s to help ambitious individuals like you create a legacy of positive change and success in all circles of influence: personal, professional and community.
