Executive search

In a business world of uncertainty and mounting performance pressure, organisations face significant challenges and having an exceptional executive leadership team is critical to combat this change. Research commissioned by Six Degrees Executive, on ‘The Future of Leadership’ has uncovered a leadership crisis. We found the expectations of our leaders has radically changed, and Australian business leaders aren’t keeping up. 

If the right leaders are not in place how can they deliver the superior capability required to grow businesses, increase profitability and productivity, as well as facilitate positive change?
