CEO Quotes A-Z by Author
I think the most important CEO task is defining
the course that the business will take over
the next five or so years. You have to have
the ability to see what the business environment
might be like a long way out, not just over
the coming months. You need to be able to
both set a broad direction, and also to
take particular decisions along the way
that make that broad direction unfold correctly.

record of high-quality leadership and a
culture of integrity.
Immelt - CEO
What a bunch of garbage, liberal, Democratic,
conservative, Republican, it's all there
to control you, two sides of the same coin!
Two management teams, bidding for control
of the CEO job of Slavery Incorporated!
Jones - Jobs
I think the hardest thing about my job is
the way Whole Foods Market views itself
philosophically is that we are a business
dedicated to meeting all the various stakeholders
of the company's best interests. And by
stakeholders we mean customers, team members,
stockholders, community, and the environment.
Sometimes what is in the best interest of
one stakeholder may not be in the best interest
of another stakeholder, and as the CEO,
I have to balance the various interests
of the different constituencies and stakeholders
to create win, win, win scenarios, and that
can sometimes be very difficult to do. Everybody
wants something from the CEO.

force things to happen.

the chairman on down, simply by spending
his money somewhere else.
Walton - Customers
My main job was developing talent. I was
a gardener providing water and other nourishment
to our top 750 people. Of course, I had
to pull out some weeds, too.
