A global survey of newly-appointed CEOs by Egon Zehnder reveals the role is more difficult and demanding than many respondents – approximately two-thirds – feel prepared for.
“This study shows, we believe, that as confident as many chief executives are, there are many aspects of the role that they are not prepared for – and possibly cannot prepare for in the traditional sense,” says Kati Najipoor-Schütte, Egon Zehnder’s global CEO Practice leader.
These findings suggest that chief executive candidates may need more guidance and development when it comes to learning how to cultivate and manage the culture of an organization.
