CEO advice

Read this earlier in the week in Fortune Geoff Colvin’s Power Sheet newsletter about tips for CEO Succession. One of the pieces of advice was to ground oneself and keep humble. Colvin told this anecdote that I think has a nice turn of words. “I once asked former Honeywell CEO and former General Electric vice chairman Larry Bossidy how he could tell when rising leaders weren’t going to make it. He answered, “They don’t grow. They swell.” Great advice.
