Focus: Taking stock of leadership
How companies win the confidence of investors
Most businesses recognize that leadership is important to their performance and market value, yet leadership strength is often seen as hard to quantify. So how do analysts and companies measure the impact of effective leadership?
In this collection of thought leadership, Deloitte teams across the globe investigate how leadership can be evaluated, developed, and strategically utilized to drive business performance.
According to one recent study:

- analysts look at several core components in assessing leadership strength: strategic clarity, successful execution, a culture of innovation, and effective corporate governance
