THE NEED FOR STRATEGIC LEADERS HAS NEVER BEEN GREATER Key findings of the CCL study Seven leadership skills are consistently viewed as most important now and in the future. They are: leading employees, strategic planning, inspiring commitment, managing change, resourcefulness, being a quick learner, and doing whatever it takes. Leaders lack the skills they need to be effective today. Of the “top five” needs — inspiring commitment, strategic planning, leading people, resourcefulness, and employee development — only resourcefulness is considered be a “top ten” skill. This is what CCL calls “the current leadership deficit.” Leaders are not adequately prepared for the future. Today’s leadership capacity is insufficient to meet future leadership requirements. The four most important future skills — leading people, strategic planning, inspiring commitment, and managing change — are among the weakest competencies for today’s leaders.

CLIENT RESULTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES "The strategic facilitator is going to get under the hood of the entire business and push you and your management team to do things you never knew you could, in ways you never knew you could do them. When we started using The Raffoni Group a few years ago, our business had stalled. Since then, we've doubled our EBITDA, and I can draw a straight line from The Raffoni Group's arrival to the results we have today.” –Chuck Cohen, CEO of Benco “I have used the Raffoni Group’s Strategic Leader’s methodology at two companies. At the first company, it facilitated growing our company from $55m to over $100m in four years and then driving a successful exit. At my current private equity backed company it helps me to facilitate significant transformational change. The metrics orientation has increased accountability and the Strategic Case Process has changed the conversation at the leadership team table from status reporting to true strategic problem solving.” - Mark Goldstein, CEO 2020 Technologies “Our company had so many projects that much of our effort was spent tracking progress to plan. The Strategic Leaders program has forced us to focus and have a different conversation. As a result, I am engaged in more strategic discussions that I not only enjoy, but that are changing the shape of our business.” - Andy Greenwalt, CEO of Emerson Ecologics
