What Should CEOs Do Differently?

When I became a CEO a year ago, I wanted to know what challenges and opportunities other CEOs had on their plate, and how they intended to respond. I decided there was no better way to find out than to simply ask them. So I used my new role as a calling card to visit with other CEOs.
A year later, after talking to dozens of CEOs at some of the world's best-known companies, I have some new insights. Some of them surprised me. Most were relevant to any organization, regardless of the type of business, size, or location. CEOs are not only fundamentally reconsidering their roles, but they are turning to meet new challenges in some unexpected ways. And information plays a big role in all these changes.
That's what I will talk about in my keynote address at Leaders Circle during this year's Oracle OpenWorld. I will share five of the most valuable insights from my listening tour, including:
- The CEO is dead (Long live the CEO)
- Regulation is reality
- Don't think big--without thinking small
