Survival mode is the order of the day

It won’t surprise anyone that CEOs are finding risk management at the top of their agendas these days as they move to survival mode. The Conference Board’s recent survey finds that neither “global economic risk” nor “financial risk” were on the list of top ten concerns last month.

Gone from the list are the customary concerns about recruiting and developing talent, and the lack of succession planning.

Every middle market business leader I know is working hard to create a plan to Survive the Storm. Large company CEOs are feeling the same pain. I guess misery loves company after all.
