In a recent Glassdoor poll, Bain & Co’s CEO Bob Bechek was rated best CEO.Why…?

¨He has received little press, but in a recent Q&A by the MBA site Poets & Quants, he’s described as being known as modest with a “self-deprecating wit” and calls empathy and perseverance the most essential qualities for a successful career.¨

Ever since Susan Cain’s NYT’s bestseller ¨Quiet¨ it seems we have moved away from loving the flamboyant, charismatic, bullish & bullying CEO to the humble, introverted CEO.

In Edgar Schein’s book ¨Humble Inquiry: The Gentle Art of Asking Instead of Telling,¨this theme is explored. There’s definitely no telling millennials – and they are our new workforce. They do however respond to exploration and inquiry.

In essence…

What kind of leader is our new leader?

What kind of leadership development do our current leaders need to achieve this new ideal?

Much more will be revealed as CEO’s like Bechek surge ahead….
