“Put your stakes in the ground to set expectations with your company’s investors and other stakeholders.” That is among the pieces of expert advice often offered to newly-named CEOs. Concept: Set a goal or two as you start out as CEO for things you would like to be measured on and held accountable for.
To make this work, the new CEO might make it aspirational for teammates, using the goals to help to set key stakeholder expectations, and focus on the things that realistically can be accomplished in the first year and then in the period beyond.

Not too long ago, I was approached by a major company eager to build its reputation as one of the “good guys.” Their CEO didn’t top noteworthy lists of admired leaders, and few knew of their charitable giving. The problem, they thought, was that they were just too humble.
They were dead wrong — and somewhat right. Here’s what I mean, and what you can learn from their story, no matter how big your business is.

In this episode we hear the argument for why trees should be considered essential infrastructure and why not every tree planting campaign can deliver what it promises.
“I believe the de-carbonization of the global economy is going to create the greatest investment opportunity of our lifetime.” This bold prediction is part of the annual letter sent to CEOs of publicly-traded companies by CEO Larry Fink of BlackRock, the world’s largest asset management firm.
BlackRock manages US$10 trillion in assets (as of end of 2021), of which $500 billion is in sustainable investments. Each year CEO Fink sets out the firm’s “expectations” of the companies it owns and shares perspectives on investment trends for leaders in the corporate sector.
