What Is Leadership?
The job of CEO is one of the most important leadership positions in society, and a better understanding of the job is vital to a better functioning economy. In this chapter, Michael E. Porter and Nitin Nohria present the results of their in-depth study of the CEO's role in the most challenging setting: the large, complex organization. They identify several core functions that the CEO must fulfill in any enterprise: direction, organization, selection, motivation, and implementation. Although these core functions have long been recognized as the "what" of the CEO's job, the "how" is more difficult to pin down. CEOs, after all, must accomplish these objectives under significant constraints and limited time. Porter and Nohria identify these constraints and show how CEOs can work effectively within them. They highlight the importance of indirect over direct influence, continuous (and clear) communication, and the allocation of personal presence as key levers in performing the CEO's job. They also stress the importance of the CEO's personal legitimacy as a means of inspiring loyalty, confidence, and trust in the organization and in their leadership. This chapter was originally published as Chapter 16 of "Handbook of Leadership Theory and Practice: A Harvard Business School Centennial Colloquium."
