Hoegl explains that new chief executives are now more motivated by making an impact than they are by making money, and notes that many executives confessed to feeling overwhelmed and unprepared when stepping into their new roles.

“Today, we see that they need more coaching and development,” Hoegl said. “The demand for cultural change and transformation is only going upwards, and they need more support about how to develop themselves and adapt to an ever-changing environment.”
