A new study from the Weber Shandwick Collective has revealed that 75% of CEOs & C-Suite Executives lack confidence in their own ability to lead effectively amidst major change and disruption.

The 2024 edition of TWSC’s UN/PREDICTIONS report revealed that three-quarters of CEOs and C-Suite Executives do not feel “very equipped” to lead around AI, ESG & Climate, Mis- and disinformation, Geopolitics and the effects of inflation.

Executives rank generative AI to be their highest priority focus area in 2024, but only 13% are confident in their ability to lead their organizations through AI-driven transformation; and over half of executives believe their company is doing a bad job of reskilling their employees

Despite AI’s role in weaponizing and propelling mis- and disinformation, only 6% of executives believe mis-and disinformation will have a significant impact on their business in 2024.
