Cindy Hook, Deloitte Australia’s CEO, was asked this question
What does today’s complex, disrupted and ever changing environment require in terms of leadership?
The role of leaders is evolving. Let me give one example of this. An important thing for leaders is just to realise that change in the world and the shifts that are happening are putting an increasing amount of performance pressure on organisations and the leaders and the individuals within those organisations. In this environment you must be very resilient; you have to have strength and stamina in order not just to survive but to perform at your highest levels. This is why wellness is so important to me at Deloitte. I define wellness broadly; it’s not just being physically strong. You need emotional, spiritual and mental strength as well. I believe that the best leaders today will both role model and enable wellness amongst their people as a means of driving individual and collective performance.
