Deloitte has launched a global leadership
research and learning centre.

The Big Four firm said the Deloitte Centre for
Collective Leadership (DCCL) aims to understand, define and advance
knowledge in the field of collective leadership. It will serve as a
resource for Deloitte member firms and will have dedicated
specialists providing professionals with training, ongoing
education and resources to enable Deloitte professionals to support
multinational companies, world leaders, political authorities, and
global markets on collective leadership matters.

“Creating an environment for a large group of
people to work together toward a common purpose is a fundamental
leadership challenge,” Deloitte global chief executive and co-chair
of the DCCL advisory board, Jim Quigley, said.

“In the increasingly complex world that we
operate in, the need for collective leadership and action has never
been more critical. We founded the DCCL to provide in-depth
research, insight, and knowledge on how leaders can maximize the
performance of their organisations.”

Stephen Langton has been appointed executive
director of the DCCL based in London. In his new role, Langton will
spearhead the advancement of the emerging strategic discipline of
collective leadership.

Previously, Langton served as global managing
partner of the Heidrick & Struggles leadership advisory arm, a
NASDAQ-listed executive search and consulting firm serving boards,
chief executives, and global leaders.

The DCCL will be releasing its first
publication, As One: Individual Action, Collective Power,
co-authored by Deloitte global chief executive Quigley and DCCL
board co-chair Mehrdad Baghai on 3 February.
