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:
2. Human Capital
3. Global Economic Uncertainty
4. Changing Regulatory Environment
5. Global Expansion and Growth.
