What makes a great Chief Executive?
Most CEOs are brought in to deliver a business transformation. In the current landscape this often means transitioning from a “bricks” based model to one that supports long-term digital growth.
The average tenure of a CEO is shorter than ever so the best candidates need to be able to hit the ground running and take immediate, decisive action in areas that need addressing.
The leading CEOs do not micro-manage – they build a strong team around them and empower people to make decisions, leaving them to focus on important questions of strategy. Perhaps most importantly, a great CEO will always do what is best for the customer.
