"Leaders need to be bold. It's the organizations that are led by leaders who are happy to take their chief people officer or their talent acquisition leader side-by-side with them on the journey over the next 3-5 years, who I genuinely believe will be in the position to capitalize on some competitive advantage."

What do CEOs expect of their CHROs? How can you unleash the "human magic" in your workforce? What strategies are CEOs using to overcome critical skills gaps? And how can they best work with their chief people officers to gain a competitive business advantage?
