What Sets Successful CEOs Apart

Elena Lytkina Botelho, Kim Rosenkoetter Powell, Stephen Kincaid, and Dina Wang, Harvard Business Review, May/June 2017

At the top of the ladder, the stakes are high and the demands intense. Too many CEOs falter in the job; about a quarter of the Fortune 500 chiefs who leave their firms each year are forced out. Clearly, boards do not always get their hires right. In conducting an analysis of in-depth assessments of 17,000 executives, the authors uncovered a large disconnect between what directors think makes for an ideal CEO and what actually leads to high performance. The findings of their 10-year research project challenge many widely held assumptions. [...read more]

Facebook’s Zuckerberg is working on a way to connect you to people you ‘should’ know

Johana Bhuiyan, recode, May 21, 2017

Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook CEO who is totally not a future presidential candidate, shared some of what he learned from his early trips around the country. (ICYMI: The not-White House hopeful wanted to visit every state he hadn't spent a lot of time in this year.) The actual crux of the post comes later when Zuckerberg writes why he's taking on this new challenge. Basically: He's not running for office, he wants to find ways to strengthen Facebook's "community." [...read more]

The Morning Risk Report: Greater Compliance Spending Brings Need for Better Focus

Ben DiPietro, The Wall Street Journal's Risk & Compliance Journal, April 17, 2017

Companies continue to spend more money and resources on compliance, but a report concluded that firms aren't leveraging their investments to their fullest extent possible. A survey of 150 compliance executives in the banking, capital markets and insurance industries by professional services firm Accenture found 48% said they expect spending on compliance over the next two years to rise between 10% and 20%, with 18% predicting spending will rise 20% or more. Making better use of existing tools and technologies would improve the ability of organizations to make the most of their compliance spending, said the survey report. [...read more]

How Gender Bias Corrupts Performance Reviews, and What to Do About It

Paola Cecchi-Dimeglio, Harvard Business Review, April 12, 2017

Annual evaluations are often subjective, which opens the door to gender bias. These biases can lead to double standards —­­ a similar situation gets a positive or a negative spin depending on gender. A content analysis of individual annual performance reviews shows that women were 1.4 times more likely to receive critical subjective feedback (as opposed to either positive feedback or critical objective feedback). But when organizations implemented gender-neutral, real-time feedback tools, such biases were reduced. [...read more]
