The survey found there is a mismatch between retailers' belief that they can continue to meet their leadership talent needs with ease as the economy improves and market forces combining to make this much more challenging to achieve.

However, 47% expect more senior executives to leave their firm and more worrisome, 43% think that more high-potential executives will leave.
