Topic Synopsis

The Professional CEO's Toolkit


Most CEOs have an extensive "toolkit" of knowledge and experience, gleaned over time with some pain... and hopefully more than equal amounts of gain. Kramers explores his experiences as CEO in eight widely diverse companies, ranging from service to manufacturing, small to large, coast to coast, and from privately owned to those owned by public corporations.


Kramers identifies the many success traits of CEOs, picking a group of seven to illustrate their specific successful applications in several different kinds of companies. Examples of how to turn these traits into action and profit are given, as are ways of improving members' own abilities using these tools.


Discussion includes:

  • The CEO: Success traits
  • Which CEO traits are critical?
  • How do you stack up and what can you do about it?
  • The CEO as professional manager: Seven critical factors
  • How CEOs spend their time
  • The CEO's toolbox

A Vistage Resource for fourteen years, Kramers provides stories of success - and anecdotal, but learning, tales of failures - in both growth and turnaround situations, leaving the listener with a well-filled toolbox to take home and turn into profitable action.
