How to be a CEO

Very interesting article from the New York Times where the author interviewed a large number of CEOs over an extended time period.  He found certain consistencies in high performing CEOs…..these include:

  1.  A shared habit of applied curiosity.  They tend to question everything.  They want to know how things work, and how to make them better.

  2.  They loved a challenge…..actually feeling a sense of discomfort is their comfort. 

  3.  How they managed their career.  There was a focus on doing the current job well……not putting too much focus on where they were headed next.

Do these characteristics resonate with you?   Are they helpful?
