The Successful CEO

Nearly half of new CEO appointments fail

Successful CEOs are often said to have certain traits and to behave in a certain way. However, such assertions do not hold up to real-world scrutiny. In the real world, each CEO succeeds, or not, in a unique context. So, there can be no general traits that will lead to his or her success.

In our ‘The Successful CEO Series’, Christian Nyhlen, the CEO of Krinova Incubator & Science Park and MU’s CEO, Richard Moore look at how you, the CEO, can be assured to succeed.

As well as being CEOs themselves, Christian and Richard have spent decades working with CEOs from high growth start-ups to global leaders in the private and public sector. They have found that by applying what science tells us about performance at work, more CEOs succeed.
