CEO for the Times

Posted on December 4, 2015 at 2:05 AM
Not the Times newspaper, but our current business environment. :)

I think the following article recently published by the AICD accurately reflects the leadership style required in the disruptive markets of today.  

Thinking you know can know everything is fool hardy, with the rate of modern change trying to learn everything before you act is futile, knowing when you have enough knowledge to act.... that's an art worth nurturing.  

Businesses can no longer just compare themselves to their competitors, not even judge themselves by looking in the the mirror of financial results, but most need to contemplate their soul and consider their very reason for being, least it no longer be valid.  

One of my favourite authors Douglas Adams  thought about this in his unique way...

“This is rather as if you imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, 'This is an interesting world I find myself in — an interesting hole I find myself in — fits me rather neatly, doesn't it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!' This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, frantically hanging on to the notion that everything's going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise. I think this may be something we need to be on the watch out for.”

RIP Douglas

With the technology we can travel long but in short times because of air plane and the bullet train. Tech make so much easy way for us and finish the distance between all people even they live far from their relatives.

The CEO or the chief of operations is always tasked of doing really hard stuff. They really shoulder a lot of responsibility and pressure, especially from the investors. However, this is only fitting because the chief of operations has always been the most capable people in the business. The amount of intellect and leadership skills that you need to be a CEO is really frightening. Being the CEO of a company might be very tiring, but the success you get more than makes up for it.
