Chief executives are focused, tenacious and disciplined

28 July 2009

Chief executives with experience in operating in recessionary environments offer companies focus, tenacity and a disciplined approach.

That is according to the Washington-based consultancy Management CV, which has suggested that senior executives with the ability to "stay focused on the prize" and persevere through adversity are the most successful.

These traits would all be useful for executives considering interim management positions in the current climate, which have surged in popularity as corporations search for director-level staff with previous understanding of turnaround roles.

Renny Ponvertm, founder of Management CV, outlined three specific skills that executives require to achieve positive results.

He told the Los Angeles Times: "One is a structured and disciplined approach to the way they go about their business. Another is focus and tenacity.

"Successful business leaders also rely on a network of trusted individuals that they repeatedly use to fill key positions."

The importance of focus and tenacity in interim management positions was also highlighted by Samson Jebutu, head of workforce planning at Essex County Council last week.
