Korn Ferry's new leadership study reveals the skills that leaders need in today's increasingly disruptive environment and areas where there is a pressing need for improvement.

By analysing the leadership profiles of 150,000 leaders from the Korn Ferry Institute's proprietary data, the study The Self-Disruptive Leader, uncovered the five ADAPT qualities of effective, future-focused leadership – qualities which correlate with a country's ability to innovate. Additionally, the study uses opinion research from 795 investors and analysts to model the gap between the current supply of these high-performance qualities and the market's demand for them.
