Across the globe, public sector leaders share many of the same leadership challenges. This paper addresses leadership challenges, gaps, career derailment factors, and opportunities within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) with a focus towards leaders of public service. The research is from three samples of Saudi leaders who participated in programs at the Center for Creative Leadership. The data illustrate KSA leaders share many of the same challenges and opportunities as government leaders with whom the Center for Creative Leadership has worked around the world. This paper offers leadership solutions to help KSA leaders address these challenges, bridge their gaps in leadership development, and prevent career derailment.
