Making of a CEOThe Making of a CEO is a illuminating result of interviews and analysis of top level CEOs across various sectors. The genesis of the book was in a popular course Krishnan taught at IIM Bangalore, where the students interviewed and analysed twenty CEOs to learn how they charted a clear path to the top.
The book explores nuances of leading in different contexts like start-ups, large corporations, family businesses, educational institutions, not-for-profits, public sector and the government. The journey to the top involves three key aspects—building professional credibility, managing your career and managing yourself.
Easy to read and dotted with insightful interviews, this book is a must-read for anyone who aspires to be in the top job or is already there.
