The American CEO walks a tightrope daily…many times blindfold and without a net. The job of balancing the often-competing interests of a company’s constituents is so challenging that the average lifespan of a newly minted CEO is around five years. Why is it that individuals who have been wildly successful at every other position in their career often fail when they get to the CEO chair?
The job of the chief executive is unlike any leadership position, yet many CEO’s are unprepared for its challenges. Along with business acumen and people management skills, they must own the company vision, provide the proper resources, build the culture consistently and in alignment with company goals, make key decisions, and deliver performance that satisfies boards, shareholders, employees and customers. They must work in an ambiguous environment in which they have absolute responsibility but limited control.
