What makes a great interim CEO?
Interim CEOs need to have a broad skill set with experience of leading multiple functional areas of a business. When a fast turnaround is required, interim CEOs must be able to step in and keep a business running smoothly during a period of transition.
Great interim CEOs will have the knowledge and experience to provide fresh insights and drive growth, whilst keeping the business stable and maintaining morale. Whether it’s support with specific projects or making big organisational changes, interim CEOs will have multiple different priorities to juggle.
Just like any CEO position, a great interim CEO is able to show reliability, adaptability, teamwork and communication skills.
