Review: A Survey of How 1,000 CEOs Spend Their Day Reveals What Makes Leaders Successful



In 883 words, Harvard Business Review's, October 12, 2017 article, "A Survey of How 1,000 CEOs Spend Their Day Reveals What Makes Leaders Successful", is merely click bait to get you to sign up for a free Harvard Business Review account, so they can send more clickbait that entices you to pay for a membership.

Take-aways from this article derived from survey data from more than 1000 CEOs from six countries, that details all the activities these CEOs did in a week's time:

-hands-on managerial CEOs are less effective than big picture, high level leaders
-most CEOs spend their days alone 1/4 of the time, emailing, traveling and handling personal
matters.
-CEOs spend most of their time with production (35%), finance (17%), marketing (22%), etc.

It's really a fluff piece, not worth reading, so don't waste your time.
