The Mind of the CEO
Jeffrey E. Garten
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
In these times of intense change, what role should our most important business leaders play in society? How do the CEOs of major corporations construe their jobs in this time of extraordinary and rapid change? How should they construe them? These are the questions posed and answered in The Mind of the CEO.
Based on extensive and highly personal interviews with forty CEOs around the world-people such as GE's Jack Welch, AOL's Steven Case, Intel's Andy Grove, Newscorp's Rupert Murdoch, BP Amoco's John Browne, Nokia's Jorma Olilla, and Toyota's Hiroshi Okuda-Jeffrey E. Garten takes us on a journey into the innermost thoughts of today's corporate titans and paints a compelling picture of the awesome strategic and daily challenges facing them. His conclusions may surprise you:
In the end, Jeffrey Garten advocates a much broader leadership role for CEOs than they now appear willing to play-though he acknowledges the extreme difficulties many will have in doing so. His ideas are a challenge to those who are suspicious of corporate power, those who believe CEOs should focus only on enriching shareholders, and even to many CEOs who see their jobs much more narrowly. They will be welcomed by anyone who is wrestling with how to make globalization work better, and those who genuinely seek ways for multinational corporations to exercise the citizenship responsibilities that come with vast economic power. No one interested in the future can afford not to read, think about, and debate The Mind of the CEO.
