Leadership has always been crucial to the effective functioning of society, and organisational performance depends in large part on the successful management of human capital. Today we face an increasingly complex world that requires leaders to deal with what we call "wicked problems" - challenges that have so many variables involved that it's not possible to solve them with natural-born charisma or talent.

Fortunately, at RSM we house more leadership experts per square meter than any other leading business school. We aim to provide leadership research and development that enables people from all backgrounds to become a force for positive change for themselves, their organizations and society as a whole.
