The attraction of a new chief executive officer is one of the most critical issues an organization faces. It is an opportunity to focus on the organization’s strategic plans and future direction, and the type of leader and the competencies required to drive that forward.

Visionary. Strategic. Innovative. Collaborative. Engaging. Compelling Communicator. Disciplined Leader. Each of these will be important attributes to look for in the new CEO – but in what measure?
