Monthly Highlights, November 2022
Today’s events—a global pandemic, energy scarcity, rapid inflation, and geopolitical tensions—might feel like a cluster of earthquakes that is reshaping our world. Are we in the early throes of a seismic shift? In a new discussion paper from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), director Chris Bradley, partner Jeongmin Seong, chairman and director Sven Smit, and director Jonathan Woetzel suggest a framework to imagine a new era, drawn from a historical perspective of the structural tectonics that underpinned the world we have today and how they might play out. Our second featured story this month provides a resilience framework for European business leaders as they face a confluence of crises and a deeply unsettled economy. Other highlights in this month’s issue include the following topics:
  • why women leaders are switching jobs at the highest rate ever seen
  • how to cultivate organizational resilience
  • why burnout has hit record levels over the past two years and what leaders can do about it
  • which skills current and former COOs see as necessary to operate effectively in the years to come
