Event description

Description

“The CEO is the link between the Inside that is ‘the organization,’ and the Outside of society, economy, technology, markets, and customers. Inside there are only costs. Results are only on the outside.” Peter Drucker

The CEO alone experiences the meaningful outside at an enterprise level and is responsible for understanding it, interpreting it, advocating for it, and presenting it so that the company can respond in a way that enables sustainable sales, profit, and total growth.

It’s a job that only CEOs can do because everybody else in the organization is focused much more narrowly and, for the most part, in one direction: Salespeople are externally focused; just about everyone else is inwardly focused. Integrating the outside and the inside is hard; it’s far easier to pick one. The CEO can see opportunities that others don’t see and, as the one person whose boss isn’t another company employee, make the judgments and the tough calls others are unable to make. The CEO is the only one held accountable for the performance and results of the company—according not just to its own goals but also to the measures and standards of diverse and often competing external stakeholders.



This luncheon is intended for all Fargo-Moorhead area CEOs, Presidents, Business Owners and Executives.

We will openly discuss your role, that of CEO, President, private business owner or Executive Director.

Your job:

1. Defining and interpreting the meaningful outside

2. Answering, time and again, the two-part question, What business are we in and what business are we not in?

3. Balancing sufficient yield in the present with necessary investment in the future

4. Shaping the values and standards of the organization

CEOs have five key responsibilities, no matter the company's size, industry or geography.

Only the chief executive -- who has a holistic view of the firm -- can take on these duties:

1. Own the vision.

2. Provide the proper resources.

3. Create the culture.

4. Make good decisions.

5. Oversee and deliver the company's performance.
