New Reality Show: CEO Exits

“Leadership transitions have all the interest of a wake, a birth and a wedding all rolled into one,” says Judith McLaughlin, Harvard professor and expert on university searches.

Her quote (which I saved) made me think about how every CEO departure triggers a corporate drama regardless of how smooth it appears to outsiders. As CEO departures mount, one can’t help but wonder about all those businesses in turmoil. The season for the most CEO departures — last quarter of the year — will soon be arriving as we close another record-breaking year of CEO churn.

In case you were wondering what I was, CEOs are no more than temps today.
