Our purpose at Starfish is to travel the journey with the busy leaders we work with, day in day out. Whatever the background. Whatever the sector. Whatever the experience. The highly experienced professionals in our team have, in many ways, grown with this group of leaders, helping them to navigate an increasingly complicated and demanding world. In many respects, we have had to navigate it ourselves to understand what is expected of us in supporting you as clients and candidates.
What it means to be an effective leader in 2023 is starkly different to 2013; yet a sign of the times we’re all living in is that expectations and pressures are also very different today compared with five and possibly even three years ago.
What is certain is that the nature of leadership – how it manifests, how we describe it, what matters – is changing.
