The CEO Leadership

By: kelliew

This article, Three rules for brand-new CEOs, intimates that life at CEO level may not be all rosy. Itís a given that the higher the salary or fatter the package, the nearer the buck stop is, until ultimately, you are the carrier of a multi million dollar weight on your shoulders. As an incoming CEO, itís pretty obvious you would have pretty big shoes to fill, right? Itís a given also, like anyone following the path of an !a href=""> executive career!/a>, that your followers would have an Ďadjustmentí period, to the new ways and personalities of the new boss.

So, if a new CEO announcement should draw kudos rather than derision Ė how does it work here in the Middle East? Itís a fact that many senior management positions in local organisations are not acquired via work experience, and length of CV. Even if you come to the role with years of loyal service and the esteem of your colleagues, the transition can be fraught.

How do you adapt your leadership style to stay at the top of your game? We canít make people like us, and hey, there canít be a management professional amongst us who hasnít made some enemies on our way up the ladder.

If your style is say, visionary or consultative, and you are starting a 100k job with a new organisation, rather than one you have moulded yourself, adaptation is key. As more multinational companies target the Middle East market and particularly, the UAE, competition with existing businesses will increase. And according to Franklin Covey, a global professional service, training and development company, the trend for local family-owned businesses growing into multinationals, investing in foreign markets and becoming publicly registered companies, preparation for competition is key.

High levels of competition and the fast paced economic landscape are compelling businesses around the world to develop unique positioning and contribution to the business environment in order to excel. .A significant number of companies in the Middle East including Dubai, are family businesses and in spite of being very successful organizations, competition and sophisticated customers' demands will urge them to evolve by adopting creative leadership and management styles in order to militate the risk of losing businesses and staff.

Executive communities agree that human resources are the most valuable asset to any organizations, yet many lack proper measurement for recruiting, positioning, developing and rewarding the talents inside the organization in order to protect and retain such assets and provide the proper environment for such talent to creatively engage in their job.

Franklin Covey believes that great leaders know how to create great teams and a great teams produce great results.
