Korn Ferry's inaugural quarterly “Confidence in Leadership Index” shows that despite a turbulent economy and broad swings in a variety of economic indicators, confidence in leadership globally remained stable between May 2009 (when the first benchmark survey was issued) and August 2009. The survey was fielded by Braun Research, Inc.
The Confidence in Leadership Index asks global executives critical questions that produce metrics for: 1) credibility of leadership, 2) trust of leadership, 3) leadership characteristics (“factors”) and 4) direction of leadership.
About the Confidence in Leadership Index:
The “Confidence in Leadership Index” was conducted via an online survey completed by 500 adults employed in management-level or higher positions. The first wave of 500 adults was fielded May 22 – June 1, 2009. The second wave of 500 adults was fielded August 26-31, 2009. Results will be aggregated for a year-end report in January 2010 and the next quarterly report will be issued in December 2009.
The survey was conducted in the following countries:
The margin of error within each wave is +/- 4.4%. Braun Research was commissioned to facilitate the study and analyze results.
