CEOs of Emerging Enterprises are constantly engaged in fire fighting with daily management issues. In the process, they do not have time to build their organisation’s future, across business cycles and growth stages. In a survey conducted studying the challenges of Emerging Enterprises, a majority of the CEOs felt that it was ‘lonely at the top’. They seldom received leadership inputs and did not have a platform to bounce their ideas. They also felt that execution was a challenge and the CEO and his team differ vastly in terms of managerial capability.
Essae ‘CEO’neself is designed to provide CEOs with a forum to get leadership inputs, exchange ideas and reflect upon their business and its key drivers. The objective is to raise awareness by discussion and sharing. It gives the CEO time away from his daily business to think, reflect and plan ahead.
A survey of 50 CEOs revealed that in managing business ambition, execution was a key challenge. The biggest reason was the vast difference between the managerial capabilities of the CEO and his team. While domain knowledge was present, the flair to propel aggressive business growth was missing.
Many organisations groom manpower to take on managerial responsibilities. While the middle level has the domain expertise, they lack behavioural competencies that are required to enable implementation of business goals.
The fast changing business scenario and increasing stakeholder demands have resulted in increasing competency gaps in the managerial cadre.
Essae Management Development Programme is designed to enhance the behavioural competencies of managers that is required to spearhead growth.
