Ron Carucci is co-founder and managing partner at Navalent, working with CEOs and executives pursuing transformational change for their organizations, leaders, and industries. He is also a bestselling author of 8 books. He has a thirty-year track record helping some of the world’s most influential executives tackle challenges of strategy, organization, and leadership. From start-ups to Fortune 10’s, turnarounds to new markets and strategies, overhauling leadership and culture to re-designing for growth, he has worked in more than 25 countries on 4 continents. In addition to being a regular contributor to HBR and Forbes, and has been featured in Fortune, CEO Magazine, BusinessInsider, MSNBC, Inc, Business Week, Smart Business, and thought leaders.
Ron led a ten-year longitudinal study on the executive transition to find out why more than 50% of leaders fail within their first 18 months of appointment and uncovering the four differentiating capabilities that set successful leaders apart. Those findings are highlighted in his groundbreaking Amazon #1 book Rising To Power, co-authored with Eric Hansen.
These findings are also summarized by Ron in the popular HBR article, which can be found at https://hbr.org/2017/11/executives-fail-to-execute-strategy-because-theyre-too-internally-focused.
HBR selected that research as one of 2016’s “Ideas that mattered most”, and I recently presented it on their Live series, which you can see here: https://www.facebook.com/HBR/videos/10155500067767787/.
