    The psychological dimension to leadership in a global world is, becoming more complex. Competition means organisations need to be more flexible and responsive, But as flatter organisations emerge, with fewer hierarchical levels, informal networks, such as friendship and personal connections, become more relevant – and that’s difficult to manage because it involves personalities.”
