The topics include:
- how to choose a right CEO, what can go wrong, what are the decision points
- what should the board consider when choosing a new CEO
- what kind of qualities should the CEO have
- the importance of the CEO's character: authority, friendliness with colleagues and other employees, capable of small talk and getting to know your coworkers/managers/employees
- how to deal with the change of strategy
- how to start to steer the company to a new direction without stepping on somebody's toes
The book is not very long, and I wish it had been longer. Not all the articles are "articles" but rather interviews with known authorities.
