The Indian CEO : A Portrait of Excellence, Hardback Book


Recognizing the pivotal role of leadership in building sustainable corporations, this book analyzes the key qualities that go into the making of a successful CEO in the Indian business environment.

Based on a landmark study which covered some of the most successful business leaders in India, The Indian CEO uses the framework developed by David McClelland of Harvard University, to determine key competencies necessary for Indian business leaders to steer their corporations in the rapidly changing business and social environments. This book is based on in-depth interviews with outstanding Indian business leaders, and includes a detailed study of the most effective behaviors vis-a-vis the most common situations faced by these leaders; and the behaviors and characteristics of Indian CEOs vis-a-vis their global counterparts.

The authors discuss qualities such as change and team leadership, accountability, empowerment, networking and executive maturity among other critical dimensions of leadership in this emerging economy.
