Author Guest PostExcellent guest post by Reuben Yonatan July 22, 2014, source ‘GetVoip’.

Landing the top job as Chief Executive Officer is a lofty goal for many businesspeople. With power, stratospheric salaries, and international influence on offer, the position of CEO is hugely attractive to many. But successfully captaining a company requires strong qualities of leadership, cooperation, wisdom, and vision. It’s a big ask for a big job, and that particular combination can be hard to come by, even with years of education and experience.

A brief look at business headlines shows that the CEO dream is often more complicated than we’d like to think. When a chief executive loses perspective, gets caught up in the perks of the job, or lacks capability for the necessary clear-sighted, decisive decision making, cracks begin to appear. How do some CEOs set themselves and their companies up for failure? Take a look at the six types of CEOs you never want to become.
