CEO Excellence by Carolyn Dewar, Scott Keller, Vikram Malhotra

If you're a sucker for a leadership book grounded in extensive research and real-life experiences, then this is it! Without a doubt one of the best reads to really appreciate the mindsets, behaviours and inner workings of what it takes to be an exceptional CEO.

This book provides valuable insights on the challenges that CEOs face in today's rapidly changing business environment, offering practical advice on how to build a high-performing leadership team, how to communicate effectively with stakeholders, and how to maintain a strong sense of purpose and mission.

Of particular interest is the stories from top CEOs - it feels like stepping into a masterclass, learning how each of these CEOs approached the role.

Why we chose to read it ✔️
This book is useful for leaders at all levels in an organisation. The content is original, insightful, and impactful beyond the CEO role and well worth the time of any current executive or manager with ambitions of leadership.

Why we recommend it 👍
For current, aspiring, and emerging leaders who love to learn through stories and examples, this is an inspiring read and a great springboard for self-development.
