What does it take to become a CEO today?

Drawing on the world’s most comprehensive leadership study, as well as thousands of hours of interviews with CEO candidates, CEO advisors Elena Botelho and Kim Powell overturn the myths about what it takes to achieve the corner office.

When we flip on the news, or check our social media feeds, we are bombarded with images of well-groomed, Ivy league-educated icons of the Fortune 100.  And we can’t help but think, I could never be them. In fact, they come from surprisingly varied backgrounds.  Of the 6 million CEOs of companies in America, only 7% went to an elite school—and 8% didn't graduate college at all.  Some are immigrants; many worked their way up through the ranks from entry-level positions. 

So, what do they do differently from the rest of us?  They:

  • Decide with Conviction and Speed
  • Practice Relentless Reliability
  • Are Relationship Masters
  • Are Proactive in Adapting to Changing Circumstances

The CEO Next Door deconstructs these four essential behaviors (as featured in Harvard Business Review), and de-mystifies the career decisions that helped these leaders accelerate upwards to more and more responsibility.  Finally, it identifies and distills the key practices that can help every one of us reach for the top.
