Recommended Reading - Leadership angst: Who is the new CEO?, Financial Post

Karen Mazurekewich wrote a story for the Financial Post examining the need for new leaders to serve as CEOs.  The writer examined the difficulties that many financial firms and their CEOs have experienced over the last two years.  In the piece the author quotes a number of academics who are pushing for changes in CEO leadership.  

“The world is crying out for a new type of leader,” says Carol Stephenson, dean of the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario.

Ms. Stephenson says today’s leaders need to be more “collaborative” and “encourage their teams to work across an enterprise or industry.” 

The story is brief but worth a quick read.
