The CEO Test

Mar 10, 2021
Online
On March 10, AmCham in partnership with Tatarklubben invited members to inspire from Harvard Business Review authors Adam Bryant and former CEO of Amgen Kevin Sharer who explored the topic -  The CEO test. 

No one can be totally prepared to become the leader—the loneliness, the weight of responsibility, the 24-hour days that require superhuman stamina —but judging by turnover numbers in the CEO ranks, many aren’t prepared at all.
 
Both authors spoke on where leaders and aspiring CEOs get their resources that give them a running start and improve their chances of succeeding.
 
Drawing on interviews with more than 600 CEOs, Adam Bryant and former CEO of Amgen Kevin Sharer provide an authoritative insider’s guide that clearly articulates the biggest challenges that make or break CEOs, sharing wisdom and experience to help shorten the learning curve for anyone stepping into the role.
 

Packed with stories, insights, tools, and takeaways, The CEO Test is the no-nonsense guide to navigating leadership’s toughest challenges, whether you’re a CEO or just setting out to become one.
