Overview

The CEO: An Interactive Book by Owen Burke, Duff McDonald

You're the boss....

Now make an executive decision.


You are the CEO of Fleece Industries. So far, you've made all the right choices. The result: Your life's work -- building a company from an idea scrawled on a bar napkin into a clothing empire -- has reached a major milestone. Fleece is going to have an initial public offering and become a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange. The instant the opening bell rings, you'll be worth tens, if not hundreds, of millions. It's a dream come true. Unfortunately that's when things get complicated. Now come the really hard choices.

What would you do if


  • You discovered that a rogue employee had been cooking the books?

  • Your mistress threatened to expose your affair to your wife?

  • You found yourself at the center of an insider-trading scandal?

  • Your daughter turned up in a sex tape on the Internet?

  • You found yourself considering the worst choice of all: MURDER?



Step up to the plate. What would you do if you were The CEO?

Great book for those looking to see what a CEO deals with and the types of decisions made. Since the book is interactive, you get a chance to play out different options to see how the outcome would affect the organization. Leadership and Vision requires Courage, Character and Integrity. Many of those are missing from the large publicly traded corporations of today. However, if you look closely enough, it is easy to see if a CEO leads his orgainzation the right way, the results speak for themselves. Highly recommended
