This is the fundamental question I keep asking my CEO clients and I have done so for several decades. What keeps you awake at night?

It’s interesting to note that CEOs of medium to large companies (1000+ employees) are usually pre-occupied with finding solutions for the same 4 or 5 problems.

In 2012 the top five CEO problems were:

1. Innovation

2. Human Capital

3. Global Economic Uncertainty

4. Changing Regulatory Environment

5. Global Expansion and Growth.

These problems reflect a mix of the macro business environment, which a CEO does not control, and company-specific challenges that require thoughtful CEO action with a well-executed business solution.
