If you want a driver’s license you need to take a test. If you want to pursue higher education, you need to take the SATs or ACTs. And if you want to know “Which Friends Character Are You?,” you have to take a quiz on BuzzFeed. And now there’s a test for CEOs. Joining Joe this week is Adam Bryant, the creator of the popular New York Times Corner Office series, the managing director of executive mentoring firm, Merryck & Co., AND the co-author of THE CEO TEST: Master the Challenges that Make or Break All Leaders.
Adam’s book THE CEO TEST: Master the Challenges that Make or Break All Leaders is available now at Amazon or wherever you buy books.
