With the rising technology disruption, the global business ecosystem is already plagued with many uncertainties in terms of cyber-attacks, economic growth, geopolitical behaviors, etc. One can always expect the C-suite executive to be tense and skeptical in such scenarios. However, their attitude is fast changing as per the latest year’s research reports. In this article at Strategy+Business, Art Kleiner talks about how optimism and trust have taken an edge over other aspects in a CEO’s priority list of 2018.
The Dual Effect
PwC’s annual survey of global C-suite executives highlighted the dual level of confidence existing in the top-level management. Most of them sounded optimistic and trusted the growth of global economy and corporate obligations. When the survey results were shared by PwC Global Chairman, Bob Moritz, the majority of CEOs or business leaders agreed with these viewpoints. Hence, they genuinely believe that the economic scenarios will flourish as per their expectations.
The Ins and Outs
When you see the real picture, the CEOs have a genuine reason to be optimistic. As a top management executive, if you are not optimistic enough, then it’s hard to drive the positive and proactive values down the hierarchy. All the major hurdles like social media vulnerabilities or stock market dips can be dealt with a positive outlook.
There is always a delicate link between trustworthiness and financial confidence. Trustworthiness comes from expertise in building robust process, workflows, internal capabilities, and work culture.
This technology disruptive state has uprooted many stable organizations, probably because they lack such an optimistic approach and trust on their capabilities. Thus, to bounce back in a globally challenging setup, it is always essential to stay positive and have confidence in yourself.
