What are the 3 greatest leadership challenges CEOs face in the years ahead?
Congratulations to Adam Bryant and Kevin Sharer on the publication of their new book “THE CEO TEST: Mastering the Challenges that Make or Break All Leaders” (Harvard Business Review Press). To mark this event we’re revisiting our summer 2020 conversation with Adam, when we previewed some of the highlights of this book.
Adam Bryant is Managing Director of Merryck & Co. He joined them in 2017 after a 30-year career in journalism, including 18 years at The New York Times. In addition to his many roles there as a reporter and editor, he created the popular weekly “Corner Office” column in 2009, interviewing 525 CEOs and other leaders over a decade.

- The most critical attribute that will separate the top CEOs from the rest in meeting these challenges
- Three immediately useful tips for successfully leading through tests CEOs face when there are no clear answers
