The author recently did a survey of more than 200 CEOs, asking them how much time they spend doing what brings the best results to the organization. The results were shocking. The average amount of time these CEOs spent using what they considered their unique abilities and making their best contributions to the organization was 21% of the time. He has found that most CEOs and second-in-commands are people who have proved in the past to produce the highest level of results in a company. But once they get in those first-(CEOs) and second-in-command positions, they don't seem to have the time to do what they do best. The author shares some strategies for CEOs to get back in their position and out of non-productive roles. These include: 1. Identify your talent. 2. Structure your schedule to make the highest and best use of your talent. 3. Be purposeful about what falls off your plate. 4. Be personally accountable.
