The Adaptable Leader
Change and complexity are both inevitable in the security industry, and success for security managers and leaders depends on being flexible and agile—in a word, adaptable.
In fact, recent research supports the importance of adaptability in leadership. The Center for Creative Leadership surveyed managers in North America on the question of what it takes to succeed as a leader. The most frequently cited success factor was the ability to develop or adapt. Conversely, the inability to develop or adapt was the most frequently cited reason for career derailment.
