Global CEOs Program

Issue 10

The impact of CEOs on businesses is well recognized, but despite that there has been surprisingly little research directly into how they operate and what factors affect their performance. In this issue we run a great piece by Amada Goodall on whether experts or generalists make better CEOs. We also look at one of a hundful of programs emerging from the leading business schools that only target CEOs.

We also turn the spotlight on coaching – specifically on the WEF’s Global Leadership Fellows coaching program.
