The CEO Paradox
IN THIS SUMMARY
Horton quotes from leading CEOs to offer a clear picture of corporate life at the top, discussing such things as decision-making, time management, handling pressure, advance planning, executive fashion, the dangers of ambition and greed, and staying out of trouble with the opposite sex. But, he also states leadership is not a one-person act, but the result of the combined efforts of every employee. Horton demystifies the role of CEO by objectively examining chef executive duties and by suggesting ways the job can be done better. Of particular value are the samplings of approaches taken by successful and not so successful CEOs.
