Tremendous leadership energy needed in going forward, says Zeti

KUALA LUMPUR, 1 Oct: (Bernama): The demand on leadership going forward will be immense and requires tremendous energy that needs to be sustainable, Bank Negara Malaysia Governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz said.

She said leadership had become even more important in the current and future environment than before, as the global economic and financial environment in the recent two decades, had dramatically transformed to become more interconnected, complex and competitive.

The governor said the world had also become more unstable and less predictable with frequent shocks and crises that requires effective management by leaders.

“These challenges transcend corporations, nations and cuts across industries, institutions and jurisdictions,” she said at the International Center for Leadership in Finance (ICLIF) Leadership Energy Summit Asia 2014 here Wednesday.

She said to survive and thrive, the challenges demanded a new generation of leadership which is forward thinking and able to succeed in bringing teams, organisations and countries to new successes, new frontiers and having the ability to sustain their performance even in a more challenging environment.
