Preparing to Lead: The CEO’s Initial Speech
In this vignette, students play the role of a newly appointed CEO joining a successful private company with 100 employees. The CEO will plan to hold two meetings with employees. The first meeting will be with the eight key department managers who have been reporting to the previous CEO who has since resigned. The second meeting will be with all 100 of the company’s employees.
In this vignette, students will choose to role play one of these meetings and prepare for questions that may be asked.
