Strategic Management Practices Discussion

Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Chicago

June 19, 2009: 7:30 AM - 8:45 AM

“Which CEO Characteristics and Abilities Matter?” - The June discussion will focus on published research by Chicago Booth Professor Steven Kaplan, along with readings providing contrasting/alternative perspectives. What lessons can we apply to our own organizations and leadership styles? Are successful CEO's clones of each other? How can an individual build upon his/her personal characteristics to become a more effective leader? Start your workday by discussing the topic with your fellow alums. These downtown (loop) breakfast discussions do not feature scheduled speakers. Rather, all participants are asked to prepare by reading at least one recommended article and join in our discussion. We believe that "no one is as smart as everyone" and that we learn by sharing our perspectives and experiences. We have also found that these discussions are an effective and enjoyable way to build a substantive network among fellow alums. Please review one or more of the recommended readings, then come prepared to contribute to a lively discussion. Don't be left out. These discussions sessions regularly "sell out", so register now to confirm your space.
