The Profile of a Pioneer in an Era of Transition
CEOs are increasingly called on to face the historic challenge of deconstructing the old structures of the past, to then construct new organizational approaches oriented towards sustainability. In this context, the role of the CEO takes on particular importance because the CEO is the person who can emanate cultural, strategic, and value imprinting, but also operative and managerial imprinting, able to strengthen the coherence of organizational processes and the behavior of persons.
Alongside solid managerial competencies, the CEO of integral sustainability must possess cultural depth in the fields of sociology and labor psychology, economic history and politics, society and capitalism. In addition, they must have a vision of what role businesses, and complex organizations more in general, can and should play in our society in the future.
