The 3 Commands for CEOs According to Warren Buffet

Continuing with yesterday’s post on The Only 3 Things a CEO Does, Warren Buffet, in his book The Essays of Warren Buffet: Lessons for Corporate America also has strong ideas for CEOs. In this case, Buffet has three commands for CEOs:

  1. They are its sole owner
  2. It is the only asset they hold
  3. They can never sell or merge it for a hundred years

Imagine the long-term, focused thinking when a CEO follows these commands, especially a true belief that “they can never sell or merge it for a hundred years.” Spend time contemplating these three commands and consider how it might change your own thoughts.

What else? What are some more ideas on the three commands for CEOs from Warren Buffet?

One thought on “The 3 Commands for CEOs According to Warren Buffet

  1. Be subtle and build a long track record.

    Too often in Atlanta’s startup community we celebrate folks who’ve had one and done or make noise / not even exited.

    you need to be able to provide value to others… employees, investors and customers. Buffets long game thinking spreads the love and those leaders should be truly celebrated.
