June 2017 —

India — The Center for Creative Leadership, a global provider of leadership development and research, and Hunt Partners, a leadership talent advisory firm, announce a joint research collaboration exploring leadership in India.

The collaboration allows the two organizations, each with a physical presence in India, to investigate trends taking place in leadership across the C-suite.

“As part of our commitment to helping further unleash the tremendous potential of India’s women and men, the Center for Creative Leadership recently conducted groundbreaking research on developing next-generation leaders here,” CCL President and CEO John R. Ryan said. “Now, through this new collaboration with Hunt Partners, we look forward to working with and learning from C-suite leaders in this dynamic economy.”

The ‘State of the Indian CXO 2017’ research will involve surveys and interviews of Indian CXOs.  The research will address topics such as:

  • The profile of a typical Indian CXO (background and experiences)
  • The learning style and abilities of Indian CXOs as they move up in their career
  • The pivotal experiences that open pathways to a CXO role in India
  • Key skills that make Indian CXOs successful
  • Steps Indian CXOs need to take for continued success

The research will be released within the next year and will be promoted through both institutions’ networks. After this initial study, the two parties will explore ongoing research with annual publish cycles.

“With over 750 executive placements since inception, Hunt Partners has a granular view of CXOs’ career-paths,” said Arjun Erry, Managing Partner at Hunt Partners. “Our credible access to 1,000s of CXOs in India will be helpful in gathering the data that can provide markers and route-maps of the typical career-path of CXOs specific to industries, functions and market-cap. CCL’s research and quantitative orientation will help us make sense of the interviews and surveys.  We are excited about this partnership and look forward to building on this collaboration.”
