If I Knew Then What I Know Now!
In response to the question “What do you wish you had known ten years ago?” the overwhelming answer from senior leaders polled by Ashridge, was “Self-knowledge!” That response prompted the initial design and pilot of Ashridge’s new Future Leaders Programme. The pilot programme and the research on which it was based provide fascinating insight into the issues faced by leaders in waiting and their organisations.
