The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails”, well said by John Maxwell. No successful organization would have ever been where it is today without effective leadership. Without leadership, all other business elements lie dormant. Leadership is one of the most crucial drivers of long term business success as it catalyzes an organisation’s assets - soft and hard, towards achieving the set goals. While leadership is not just a blanket characteristic that cures all ills, effective leaders can provide clarity of purpose, motivate and guide the organization to realize its fullest potential, and beyond.

Top 10 CEOs In Australia – 2022
A Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is the highest ranking executive in a company who is elected by the board and its shareholders. His primary responsibilities include making major corporate decisions, managing the overall operations & resources of a company, acting as the main point of communication between the board of directors & corporate operations, and being the public face of the company. In a large firm, the CEO deals with very high level strategic decisions that direct the company’s overall growth. In small companies, the CEO will be involved with day-to-day functions like reporting directly to the Board of Directors and is accountable for the performance of a company.
The main responsibilities of CEOs include communicating with the shareholders, government entities, and the public on behalf of the company, development & execution of the company’s short & long-term strategy, creating & implementing the vision & mission of an organization, evaluating work of other executive leaders within the company, being aware of the external & internal competition, expansion opportunities & industry developments, and ensuring the social responsibility in business. In addition to this, a CEO has the responsibility to ensure that the organization's leaders also experience the consequences of their actions either through reward & recognition or performance coaching & disciplinary actions.
