The 5 most elusive skills that CEOs require today

  1. A predictive view of the next three years
  2. Getting product/market fit (and keeping it, as things shift)
  3. Reading your business’ (mostly invisible) moods and patterns so that you attend to them

  5. Keeping your A-game in non-work life (marriage, mental health, physical vitality, spiritual worldview)
