The fears of CEO"s

Nov 3, 2008

What are top executives of big corporations worried about nowadays? A psychological consultant to roughly 20 top CEOs says they"re no longer preoccupied with their own leadership style, management-team dynamics or problems in their personal lives.

Now they worry about their own helplessness in the face of financial markets out of control. They worry about how their employees and others view the huge pay packages and perks they enjoy. And they want to know if the consultant thinks leading government officials and politicians in this country and Europe are telling the truth in their public statements.

We could have answered that one: The bosses and their government officials never tell the truth!
