ABOUT THE BOOK
C EO EXC ELLENC E, by McKinsey senior partners C arolyn Dewar, Scott Keller and Vikram Malhotra is a unique and timely business book which will draw on 25 years of research and interviews with top leaders of some of the world's most respected companies. The resulting book will demonstrate that while the role of C EO is unique within every organisation, it is surprisingly similar across companies even in disparate industries.
Furthermore, the best C EOs approach their role with distinct mindsets and practices.
This book is about truly world class leadership, showing how the best C EOs think, adapt and approach challenges (never more relevant than in this extraordinary time). It will show why a brilliant C EO can have such an immense impact, and demonstrate how to model yourself and your performance on the very best - so that your turn to lead comes sooner, and is more successful.
