UPFRONT Passing through

Senior executives have much itchier feet these days and employers now expect corporate leaders to come and go at an increasingly faster rate than in the past, according to US business futurists Roger Herman and Joyce Gioia.
They cite recent poll revealing that 54 percent of executives expect to work for seven or more employers during their career, whereas only nine percent expected that degree of mobility decade ago.
Part of the fluidity is driven by downsizing, restructuring, outsourcing, off-shoring and the influence of changes at the top. And volatility at CEO level often has flow-down effect, says Herman.
As the economy and job market heat up, he predicts more executives will change employers, which will influence leadership style and performance both at companies they leave and those they join.
