Provides advice for future C level executives
What gets overlooked in the hybrid work from home model and how do leaders instill trust to employees
The average tenure of a CEO is now three years. They face intense pressure from outside and inside forces. Be it start up, mid-size or Fortune 500 companies. The cycle of change and intensity is getting faster while cycles of innovation is getting shorter. Expectations are higher and the complexity of management is increasing; different age demographics, DEI, access and ensuring all voices are being heard.
Life cycle of companies are getting shorter due to M&A or closing their doors due to lack of innovations or opportunities.
CEOs must be more externally focused, while constantly learning and seeking feedback from peers and key stakeholders. CEOs must ensure they have a network of peers that they can turn to for advice and be a sounding board.
An effective leader must hold other executive team members accountable so that culture starts from the top and filters down.
