Inside-Outside Leadership For Exponential Growth

Free registration required

Executive Summary

One member of the leadership pair, typically the CEO, fills this role. The CEO could be an external hire, typically brought in early, or a founding member. Meg Whitman was brought in early - Microsoft's Bill Gates, Starbucks' Howard Schultz, and Nike's Phil Knight are founding members. The role of the outside leader depends on the value proposition of the company. Nike's Phil Knight was a showcase of breakaway marketing leadership. Knight constantly pushed the boundaries - and changed the ground rules. Instead of marketing shoes, he marketed the athletes who wore the shoes and what they achieved in their Nikes.
