Today, the role of a CEO in businesses is much more challenging and demanding because of the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous) environment. Further, CEOs must achieve organizations’ financial and non-financial goals in a disruptive world. Businesses no longer need typical CEOs but business leaders who must be visionary, knowledgeable, agile, and impactful people who can create value throughout the entire organizational ecosystem. These business leaders are rare, but they can be developed.
There is a sufficient number of business schools in Pakistan for every specialty: accountants, financiers, technologists, human resources, marketers, and, of course, general managers, who have their choice of hundreds, if not thousands, of M.B.A. programs. But where is the school for the CEOs, as they are in charge of getting the best results from all these organization members? There is no school for CEOs, but Chief Executives must learn how to lead a company. The Certified CEO program of Jibran Bashir Leadership Institute (JBLI) develops the mindsets and capabilities of individuals to transform them into result-oriented Business Leaders to create an impact in their enterprise and beyond.
The Certified CEO Program is a one-on-one five-day classroom-based certification course for today’s and tomorrow’s enterprise leaders. It is available for Family Business Owners, Professional CEOs, and Senior Professionals nominated for CEO positions for their organizations.
