Also gaining massively in importance, of course, are the issues of sustainability, geopolitical and unpredictable influences alongside the environment and climate, and the expectations of Generation Y and its successor generations, and these should be represented commensurately in every strategy.
These essential new core competencies are part of the basic equipment of the new CEO generation. The skills of agility, agile leadership and resilience are taking on a whole new significance, in both business and the personal sphere. Flexibility in respect of new technologies, the understanding of new technology-based competitors, speed of response to changing customer needs, managing investor expectations and acting as a generational coach for future leaders form the spectrum of the new mind set of the CEO generation.

This overview is based on the studies “CEO Outlook 2019 von KPMG”, the “CEO-Umfrage von Gartner 2019” and the “Report 7 C-Suite Skills by Saint Mary’s College of California 2019”.
