  • The three qualities the panel rate highest in a good CEO are the ability to motivate and inspire others, being a strategic thinker and team and people management.  
  • The highest proportion of the panel would replace some or all of their senior management team if they were to become CEO! Just under a third would also increase all staff incentivization. 
  • Respondents have been in their current position for an average of 5.8 years.
