What it takes to be a successful CEO

A slide in the Change Mangement class that caught my attention :

“There was a time when I thought that brains were everything. That view has dimmed recently. I think brains are important, but now I also look for good team-builders, good communicators, and courageous people who don’t get stuck with an idea. You need people who are more nimble, who have the ability to lead organizations in changing and tumultuous times comfortably,
without panicking.”

- Larry Bossidy, Chairman & CEO, Allied Signal, Inc.
