A great CEO can be hard to find, but 4 simple traits will give you an idea of what to look for in a CEO.

1. Accountability

A CEO should be accountable to the company. If you are the CEO right now, are you being accountable? This includes getting the work done on time and being able to motivate others in both good and bad times.

2. Leadership

A CEO is a high-level position, so being able to lead is a top priority. You need to lead your employees and upper management when problems arise. Leadership is about owning issues and finding the proper solutions.


3. Success

There should be at least some measure of success for a CEO. If there is not, then a problem could be lurking where you do not know. A successful CEO has created soultions which have produced real results. A good way to check on this is the numbers. Are the numbers increasing or are they decreasing?


4. Growth

Growth is also an essential part of being a CEO. CEOs need to be able to create growth in the company for the future. Without growth, there may not be a future for your company.

Besides those characteristics that you've listed, I think a great netti (nettikasino-bonukset.com) CEO would be a visionary, who has a good overview of what he is doing and will do in the future.
He must know which goals are suitable and achievable for the company so that he can steer the business.

@businessgurl I totally agree with you. But I think a great CEO is the life of a company, he knows how to lead his team to solve the problems, focusing on his important and advantages things, Outsourcing the none-technical and disadvantages things and so on. Professional things should be done by professional company. Of course his personality charm is also very very importment.

@dmoss There are actually management training programs, leadership workshops and CEO coaching. A lot of things a CEO needs can be learned, for example, financial management and encouraging employee engagement.

And it is always a plus if the specific person has natural leadership abilities, positivity and respectful manners.

The Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) is responsible for leading the development and execution of the Company's long term strategy with a view to creating shareholder value. ... The CEO acts as a direct liaison between the Board and management of the Company and communicates to the Board on behalf of management.

It's hard to be a CEO and harder to be a Great CEO, but some of the quality makes a great CEO. These are mention below-:

1) Honest and ethical
2) Decisive
3) Has a clear vision for the company
4) Inspires and motivates others
5) Cares about the company to be good place to work
6) Has a global business outlook


Agree with most everything here. Would add in leads by example.

I think a great CEO means he or she is able to lead their team, company and their brand to the fullest. They are able to understand her or his employee situations and can push each individuals to do their best in their individual role.

If you are interested in this topic, you can read our article on "Evaluating executive performance – global ranking of top performing CEOs"

What it takes to be a great CEO? Its not just the CEO's own traits, personalities, qualities, or values.

Another thing that makes a great CEO is his/her employees/team. If they are able to work hand in hand to make a business grow, the that is a great CEO.

Yes, it is absolutely correct that if CEO of the company has leadership quality then he must be great CEO. Also, who have the emotional intelligence to embrace the softer side of the business such as employee welfare, building good relationship with other etc. will definitely a successful CEO.

I agree, and to add...

By definition, not all CEOs will be exceptional. Yet for any CEO starting a transition, there is much to learn from the best. Adopting an outsider’s view will yield the unbiased insights needed for breakthrough moves. Likewise, investing in a robust strategic review will provide a surer perspective for setting a strategic direction. A grounding in the organization’s context, meanwhile, will help calibrate the speed and scope of change. Those in our sample do much of this at the highest level, setting a benchmark for every CEO aspiring to a successful debut.

Someone should have multiple qualities to become a good CEO like leadership, team player, quick learner, patients and of course a good salesman.

Absolutely true because CEO must be great because he is the only person at the higher position and all the decisions made by him. So, he is responsible for everything. He must be understanding too.

I agree with the qualities mentioned above. In my opinion, communication is very important. We wrote an informative blog entry about how CEOs could use blogs themselves to further improve the communication with their employees. You might find it interesting: https://www.myhubintranet.com/ceo-blog/

Discoveries from an information base of 17,000 C-suite evaluations uncover that fruitful CEOs exhibit four explicit practices that demonstrate basic to their presentation: They're definitive, they connect with for sway, they adjust proactively, and they convey dependably. The CEO job is an intense one to fill.

This might not seem like a big deal but as with anything else, appearances and first impressions are just as important in a pizzeria. Your customers might be just a group of friends in for a night out or it might be a couple who are out for a romantic dinner; for any occasion, the sight of a big professional wood-burning oven for instance gives a nice warm and welcoming feel to the place. This becomes even more important if you have an open kitchen layout. You can incorporate the oven into your interior design and décor and give your equipment for pizzeria (https://pizzaequipment.co.uk/)beautiful and professional outlook.

For example, high confidence more than doubles a candidate’s chances of being chosen as CEO but provides no advantage in performance on the job. In other words, what makes candidates look good to boards has little connection to what makes them succeed in the role.

But our most important discovery was that successful chief executives tend to demonstrate four specific behaviors that prove critical to their performance. We also found that when boards focus on those behaviors in their selection and development processes, they significantly increase their chances of hiring the right CEO.

And our research and experience suggest that when leaders who aspire to the CEO’s office—87% of executives, according to a 2019-20 survey deliberately develop those behaviors, they dramatically raise the odds that they’ll become high-performing chief executives.

The Four Behaviors
It’s rare for successful leaders to excel at all four behaviors. However, when we dug through our data, looking at the ratings our consultants had given candidates when evaluating them on fit for a CEO job and performance on 30 management competencies

The behaviors we’re about to describe sound deceptively simple. But the key is to practice them with maniacal consistency, which our work reveals is a great challenge for many leaders.

1. Deciding with speed and conviction.
Legends about CEOs who always seem to know exactly how to steer their companies to wild success seem to abound in business. But we discovered that high-performing CEOs do not necessarily stand out for making great decisions all the time; rather, they stand out for being more decisive.

2. Engaging for impact.
Once CEOs set a clear course for the business, they must get buy-in among their employees and other stakeholders. We found that strong performers balance keen insight into their stakeholders’ priorities with an unrelenting focus on delivering business results.

3. Adapting proactively.
For evidence of how important it is for businesses and leaders to adjust to a rapidly changing environment, we need look no further than the aftermath of Brexit and the recent U.S. presidential election.

4. Delivering reliably.
Mundane as it may sound, the ability to reliably produce results was possibly the most powerful of the four essential CEO behaviors. In our sample, CEO candidates who scored high on reliability were twice as likely to be picked for the role and 15 times more likely to succeed in it.


To be clear, there’s no perfect mix of the four behaviors that works for every CEO position. The industry and the company context determine which behaviors and skills are most important in any particular situation. A CEO in a rapidly evolving industry—for example, technology—will surely need to excel in adapting proactively, but that behavior may matter less in stable sectors.

In short, the single most important role of a CEO is to make absolutely certain that the right CEO is running the company and then do what is necessary to encourage that CEO's effectiveness over the long haul. Strategy, vision, culture, shareholder value.

They should have the ability to be consistently clear, whether it's setting deadlines, expressing company needs or showing teams how things are done. It also helps with employee encouragement and boosting morale. Good CEOs are devoted to listening to their team members, customers, and shareholders.

Decency

It is also a part of being a great CEO, it is a quality that can greatly help you be a better CEO. A vital part of a CEO’s job is relationship-building; with investors, shareholders, employees, and the people. It will be much simpler for others to trust you enough to get your vision and help you realize it if you show true decency and care toward them.
