The CEO Next Door: The Four Behaviours that Transform Ordinary People into World-class Leaders – Elena L. Botelho and Kim R. Powell – 2018

Ambitious business leaders – this is the book for you! The first section is all about the skills you need to run a good size business. The book focuses on the path to becoming a CEO but the basic principles covered apply to anyone in a leadership role in just about any size organization. Read this section twice and then put it all into practice.

The second section covers the various paths to becoming a CEO and the third section delves with the challenges of actually being a CEO. The stories are real and you will likely relate to many of them. One comment: most examples deal with CEOs who have changed companies multiple times but the top-quality CEOs I know spent most of their career with one organization.

A must read for future CEOs.
