Where CEOs Come To Learn
We believe CEOs should also be Chief Learners of their organization.
Our members are constantly seeking new ideas, theories and processes that can make them more effective leaders. That’s why we offer this expanding collection of resources. Bookmark this page and check back often to learn about the latest trends in leadership.
Great CEOs are Lazy
We conducted in-depth interviews with more than 1,000 successful CEOs and found that exceptional CEOs accomplish more in less time. In fact, these leaders consistently outperformed average CEOs by a factor of 5x. Our findings inspired our purpose, informed our methods, and are well-documented in the book Greate CEOs are Lazy, written by CEO and founder Jim Schleckser.
In 2007, we formalized an alliance with Inc. Magazine, which shares our mission of helping companies grow. The publication recognizes the fastest-growing companies and communicates the stories and success principles of their leaders to benefit the broader community. Inc. CEO Project takes this mission to the next level. We equip our CEOs with a unique approach based on the Theory of Constraints that helps them focus on the right things, hold people accountable, and make better decisions.
