This research, conducted at our Growth Company Retreat, provides a fascinating insight into the challenges growth leaders are facing around what to prioritise in a tough economic climate, growth and exit strategies, and finding and retaining the right talent.

Key findings from Criticaleye's Growth Company Research:

  • Customer focus has jumped to the top of the priority list
  • Mentoring and peer learning are the most effective development tools
  • Confidence in UK growth has fallen significantly
  • 70% say their Chair provides the right support
  • The Board is the most challenging internal stakeholder
  • Communication and people skills are hampering top team performance
