Discussion Forum #4 - If You Were CEO For One Month...

The grass more often than not, looks greener on the other side of the fence.

Or shinier.

Or easier to manage.

It's thus no wonder that you often think that you could do a better job than the incumbent leader in running the company. You're therefore quick to note the chronic problems lurking in your organisation or list the blunders made by those at the helm of affairs. You also grumble, complain and moan about the status quo.

You reckon that you've got impressive ideas for moving your company forward. This belief of course leads to fanciful daydreams about being the CEO sitting in the plush office, enjoying the extravagant salary and relishing luxurious perks attached to that coveted spot. You fantasise about implementing such and such rules, sacking those leeches (aka the senior executives), and basking in the adulation of your followers (aka staff), as the omniscient, charismatic leader that your company deserves. You'd love to be known as a true professional who exudes great executive presence with excellent communication skills and who gets stuff done.

Really how difficult could it be?

Well here's your chance.

Imagine that you were given the opportunity to become the chief executive officer in your dream company for one month, with full rein to executive powers.

The only snag is that whatever decisions you make will remain binding after the given period, after which you resume your previous role.

What move will you make?
