A CEO’s guide to excellence

What if the world’s highest-performing CEOs held a master class on what it takes to succeed in the most senior corporate role? That’s what three McKinsey senior partners set out to deliver by conducting frank, in-depth interviews with 67 of the world’s best CEOs—including Jamie Dimon (JPMorgan Chase), Satya Nadella (Microsoft), Reed Hastings (Netflix), and Mary Barra (GM). The result? CEO Excellence: The Six Mindsets That Distinguish the Best Leaders from the Rest, out from Simon & Schuster on March 15, 2022. Check out these insights from the authors of the #CEOExcellenceBook, and dive deeper into the mindsets that set apart the best leaders.
