Summary

The Making of a CEO is the result of interviews and analysis of top-level CEOs across various sectors. The audiobook has it genesis in a popular course Krishnan taught at IIMB, where the students interviewed and analyzed 20 CEOs to learn how they charted a clear path to the top.

The audiobook explores nuances of leading in different contexts like start-ups, large corporations, family businesses, educational institutions, not-for-profits, public sector, and the government. The journey to the top involves three key aspects - building professional credibility, managing your career, and managing yourself.

Easy to listen to and dotted with insightful interviews, this audiobook is a must-hear for anyone who aspires to be in the top job or is already there.

Not quite what I expected

I feel that the emphasis on what school a manager attended is overrated. It becomes annoying as the book and/or story becomes repetitive, e.g. more like who you know impression that pushed one to the CEO position. One should remember that not everybody has the funds to go to a top school and not all top schools produce so called good CEOs, most go there for networking opportunities. For me the book is too superficial rather than a good insight.
