What if the world’s highest-performing CEOs held a master class to share the skills and practices that have driven their success over the years?
McKinsey & Company led a research effort to identify those CEOs whose companies grew demonstrably healthier during their tenures, looking across more than 20 years’ worth of data on 7,800 CEOs from 3,500 public companies across 70 countries and 24 industries to further identify those whose actions have led to breakaway success. Three McKinsey senior partners then conducted detailed interviews with a representative sample of 67 high-performing CEOs and synthesized their findings in their new book, CEO Excellence: The Six Mindsets That Distinguish the Best Leaders from the Rest.
