“If you cannot communicate in today’s world with all stakeholders, then you will fail – and some have failed. So we think fundamentally that relationship-building, pragmatism, agility defines who these longer-term CEOs are.”
What makes a long-term CEO? Clarke Murphy (Russell Reynolds Associates) joins the podcast to discuss the attributes that make executive leaders effective at driving long-term outcomes. Topics include:
What factors are contributing to the steady decline in CEO tenure.
How frequent turnover at the executive level affects companies’ ability to implement long-term plans – and what it means for investors.
How successful companies are building diverse and well-rounded boards of directors.
