PREPARING CEOs FOR SUCCESS! Here are the true experts on becoming a successful CEO—the men and women who have actually done it! Here, in their own voices, more than two-dozen CEOs from
top global companies tell you “What I Wish I Knew” prior to taking the top job. They reveal what future CEOs—and leaders at all levels—need to do to prepare for and navigate tomorrow’s leadership challenges. The book is

more.
“The CEO Prerequisites” includes 6 key personal qualities, 9 specific career experiences, and 9 tested management practices that they rely on most heavily every day.
“The CEO Handbook” is your personal guide for the most critical aspects of being a CEO. It overflows with anecdotes and advice on leading your new team, combating isolation on the job, managing work-life balance and more.
