Which two words can best narrow down hundreds of 21st century conversations and discussions around leadership agility?

While Synergists (just 1% of today’s managers) may represent the long-term future of effective leadership, the vital challenge most companies face today is the need to develop Achievers at the upper levels into Catalysts, and Experts at the lower and middle levels into Achievers.”
