New York Times Bestseller
Wall Street Journal Bestseller
"Interviews CEOs (refreshingly, not just the usual suspects), finds out what makes them tick, and formulates a set of maxims and observations...A satisfying handbook for future moguls."
--Kirkus Reviews
"CEO Excellence pulls back the curtain on how some of the world's greatest business leaders have achieved success. Readers from the classroom to the boardroom will find valuable lessons they can apply to their own careers."
--Stephen A. Schwarzman, Chairman, CEO, and cofounder of Blackstone
"Leadership is something you learn first by watching and then by doing--and the best leaders never stop learning, which is why this is a book for those who want to sharpen their skills in leading organizations to higher levels."
- Michael Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies, and mayor of New York, 2002-2013
"Do we need another book on leadership at the top? Yes! Having created the world's first school for incumbent CEOs and studied thousands over forty-five years, I can confirm that Dewar, Keller, and Malhotra provide valuable fresh insight. Instead of selecting clients or cronies to study, they were guided by analytic screening of performance on many key dimensions. Their conclusions show how CEOs shape culture and are shaped by it. By objectively examining character and context together, they transcend vague lists of virtues and reveal that leadership impact is very different from the boastful, backslapping self-promotion we see too often. This book provides leaders at all career stages insight on how to complement and enhance their respective styles."
--Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Founder and President of the Chief Executive Leadership Institute and Senior Associate Dean for Leadership Studies at the Yale School of Management
"McKinsey's access to the best corporate CEOs has produced a remarkable and highly readable analysis of what makes leaders' jobs so difficult in this age of constant social media focus, shareholder activism, great board involvement, enhanced ESG needs, growing global challenges, and increased government oversight. Any smart CEO looking to not just survive but thrive would do well to read and heed this book's insights."
--David Rubenstein, co-founder and co-executive chairman of The Carlyle Group and New York Times bestselling author of How to Lead
"Illuminating and even inspiring...Perhaps surprisingly, what stands out in this book's spotlighting of top CEOs' varied approaches is their willingness to be selfless, to let others shine. Their strategies for building up team members, and the ways they not only craft a vision but make those around them collaborators in it are ones I'm excited to teach in my leadership courses at Harvard."
-Frances Frei, coauthor of Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader's Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You
"This is a remarkable book by three top-notch business gurus. Vik, Scott, and Carolyn have taken a plunge into the minds of the world's finest CEOs, reached deep into their psyches, retrieved the rarest pearls of wisdom, and strung them together nicely in a most readable narrative. This is not just a book but a veritable guide to becoming a complete leader and leading a complete life. A must read for everyone in the world of ideas and enterprises."
- Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Industries
"This is truly a must-read for everyone who is (or wants to be) a CEO. In a very informative and highly enjoyable style, Vikram, Carolyn, and Scott share leadership wisdom that applies to every conceivable business. I only wish I had the benefit of this wonderful book years ago."
-Jason Flom, former Chairman and CEO of Atlantic Records, Virgin Records, and Capitol Music Group
