Whether you are a specialty retailer or a global giant, the ability to attract, develop, and retain dynamic leadership is critical to shaping your future. But new technology, omni-channel retail, market power shifts, and ever-changing consumer habits are continually redefining the type of leadership needed to succeed in today’s retail space.

Our retail leaders must possess unique and exacting skill sets with cross-cultural understanding; the agility to integrate digital, social, and e-commerce market trends to drive growth, the capacity to develop strategy beyond their own experience, and the ability to influence and inspire even in the face of an unknown future.

They must lead through change, intuitively and analytically understand the evolving consumer, and decisively respond to market ambiguity. Needless to say, finding leaders and experts who fit all of these bills is a tall order.
