    schema:reviewBody ""The Right CEO identifies the fatal flaws in the current CEO selection process and offers a plan for remedying it. Using real-life examples, Wackerle offers a clear understanding of why organizations fail to select the right CEO. He includes solid suggestions for finding and selecting a CEO successor who is right for an organization and also gives CEO candidates candid information they need to evaluate the right or wrong opportunity." "Unlike other books on the topic, The Right CEO explores the idea that many CEO selections are flawed because the interrelationship between the five key players - board members, incumbent CEOs, human resource executives, CEO search consulants, and candidates - is often dysfunctional. Using the examples, suggestions, and information outlined in this book: board members will gain governance insight for overcoming their often unconscious leadership biases and select the candidate who best meets the strategic needs of the organization; incumbent CEOs will be led to explore the fine line between securing the company's future and establishing their own legacies; search consultants will find ways to increase the likelihood that their clients will select the right candidate; human resource executives will discover how they must assume a more important role in CEO succession and selection and help the selection committee avoid common mistakes; and prospective candidates will learn how to get past common "naive" candidate assumptions in order to evaluate a CEO offer objectively."--BOOK JACKET.
