This is a challenging time to a business leader. Around the globe, the economic roller coaster is far from over. The political uncertainty has taken a toll on long-term business planning. Back in the United States, shareholder activists have become powerful critics of business leaders. It’s a tough time to be a C.E.O in particular, which explains the 2015 turnover among global C.E.O.S, which reached a record high of nearly 17 percent.
Against this backdrop, it’s heartening to see a group of high-performing C.E.O.S. This year, we have ‘Most Unsung Iconic C.E.O.S of All Times,’ a great illustration of the many ‘unsung’ business leaders who have successfully steered the company through adverse times. These best-in-class C.E.O.S have two traits in common: an ability to embrace risks and a bias towards capitalizing on opportunities. These characteristics of business leaders benefit almost every business, as they are clear markers for the ability to be open-minded and connect thoughtfully across a variety of channels to take advantage of market disruption. The list offers a stark reminder that a spectacular performance doesn’t go unnoticed. Plunge In!
