2010 IBM CEO Study

The CEO study is posted:  http://www-935.ibm.com/services/us/ceo/ceostudy2010/index.html

This year, IBM interviewed student (our future leaders!) from around the world. A couple of key points were:

  • Students are at least twice as likely to focus on globalization and sustainability issues as CEOs
  • Students see scarcity of resources as a challenge they will need to address during their lifetimes
  • From CEOs:  Creativity is the #1 leadership quality
  • For Students, creativity is consistently seen as the #1 leadership quality, but students’ emphasis is on global thinking and sustainability
  • Fewer than 4 in 10 students believe their education has prepared them well to address the new realities of a shared planet
