Deloitte’s new report, “The Leadership Premium” surveyed analysts from around the world including the United Kingdom, the United States, China, India, Japan, and Brazil.  It found that leadership qualities from core abilities to personality had an impact on how analysts viewed a firm’s ability to meet market expectations. According to the report, the analysts who said the quality of leadership affected their valuations awarded, on average, a premium of 15.7% for particularly effective leadership. In contrast, an average 19.8% discount is applied where there is ineffective leadership. Read the report from Deloitte here.
