    I was going to post something similar.

    A well-developed skill of arse-licking would also help.

    Greed, vanity, arrogance- in the eyes of people with these qualities- are superb qualities for the job.

    Is this what's the best way to become a CEO or what we think CEOs should be like?

    For the former, probably ruthless greed, coupled with numbness to guilt.

    If it's the latter, I would wish for CEOs to have a social conscience.

    Here's one attribute that I can think of and think you'll find it's fairly common of most CEOs and senior executives.

    "Big Picture thinking" and if anything a disregard for detail and the ability to hand the "logical analyzing" (the details) down the chain.

    CEO's have "visions" and "missions" and employ people that turn that stuff into reality. They tend to look at things "globally" and leave the nitty gritty to people who do nitty gritty better than they do.

    yes but ambition often turns into greed especially since most CEO's ambition is too make even more money and spend as little as possible regardless of the costs to the enviroment etc.... there are some exceptions though for example an american carpet company decided to stop selling its carpets and instead lease them for the duration of their use recovering and recycling them at the end of their use good for the enviroment good for business

    true... point noted....... i was just saying ambition .. as from the point of view of the company... where the company's interests come first....(of course i dont support that attitude)..... obviously external consequences have to be taken into account... but there are very few companies such as the one in ur example which are considerate..

    Isn't it that IQ only weight 15 percent in your track to success while EQ take up 85 percent????

    No.

    EQ is not even considered a measure of neuronal computing power, but rather a non-empirical speculation on human personality. IQ and the Big 5 Personality traits are the most valid and empirically verifiable measures of human success.

    All of the above and the ability to be open to other suggestions and able to listen to the staff, um and no major enemies- CEOs aren't as evil as some are suggesting...

    I just can't agree with you at this point.
    Firstly,EQ weight more at one person's success is accepted by most researchers.
    Secondly or personnally i think neither EQ nor IQ is a accurate measure of one's succcess.however the attitude toward life,work and career may be a decisive factor of a person's achievement.
