CHAIR AND CEO
Chair and CEO – when Purpose and Passion collide – Game on!
“A startling 86% of respondents agree we have a leadership crisis in the world today.”
World Economic Forum Global Agenda Outlook 2016
This topic fills the room at a conference. It gets interesting when the Chair and CEO are both present!
To thrive in an organization in the 21st century Global economy requires unprecedented leadership capacity and delivery, individually and collectively.
An IBM Global Survey found the majority of CEOs expect business complexity is going to increase and more than half doubt their ability to manage it.
The aligned leadership of Board, Chair and CEO are critical components of any successful organisation. Good, passionate, purposeful Governance creates elite organisations but rests on CEO, Chair and Board performance and their ability to work together. When they are reading off the same page, organisations flourish.
When they collide it can create organizational chaos.
