In a study by the Center for Creative Leadership, 86% of senior executives said it is “extremely important” to work across boundaries in their current leadership roles. Yet, only seven percent of these executives believe they are currently “very effective” at doing so. Closing this gap is both a critical challenge and a transformative opportunity for leaders and organizations in today’s business environment. This paper explores why boundary spanning leadership matters and how to make it happen.
