Over the last two years, leaders have had to deal with a rapidly evolving landscape, from the chaos of the pandemic to the great resignation. This led to many changes in what it meant to be effective as a leader, with humility, empathy, compassion, and authenticity taking centre stage.

And levels of disengagement are higher among the younger workforce than their more senior counterparts.
