â–¶ Public Down on Leaders: Business, political and religious leaders are falling short of expectations around the world—with Europeans and Americans the most disillusioned—according to a 12-country survey by Ketchum released in March 2012. In fact, the “Ketchum Leadership Communication Monitor” found that more people globally believe leadership will actually get worse in 2012 (31%), compared with anticipating better leadership (27%). Other study findings include: • Business leaders were seen as the most effective in 2011—beating politicians, not-for-profit bosses and even religious leaders. More than a third of respondents said they were more confident in business leaders than a year ago, with 36% viewing business as providing effective leadership (receiving an “excellent” rating of 8 or above on a scale of 0-10) and 48% seeing them as effective communicators. • Within the business community, knowledge-based industries were perceived as having the most effective bosses.
