Chris Lewis and Pippa Malmgren present the results of a series of 2017 and 2018 LEWIS Advisory Board forums that they conducted with leaders worldwide to discuss a “sharper, more accurate image of reality” as these executives encounter it. Drawing from the ideas of leaders from the public and private sectors, the military, religious institutions and business schools, among other organizations, the forums concluded that success depends on long-term thinking, situational fluency and a focus on qualitative – not only quantitative – measurements. With precision and clarity, the authors diagram the challenges facing today’s leaders amid upheavals in geopolitics, technology and values.
