The Keys to Being an Effective Executive
The CEO agenda is worth studying for what it says about, not only how executives spend their time, but also what they aren't spending time on and maybe should. The authors interviewed 180 CEOs operating in Latin America, and discovered telling gaps between what these executives believed they did and what they actually did. The authors then classify 15 key tasks according to their level of priority, highlighting where CEOs may need to devote more time, effort and attention. This article includes a self-check for readers to test themselves on how well they are performing their tasks and living up to their executive roles. It may be time for busy CEOs to revisit their agendas. The future of their companies depends on it.
