You establish priorities, anticipate and address challenges, champion and lead change efforts, set people up for success, and manage risk. Though you may have a great senior executive team and a top-flight board, the success of your organization depends on your leadership.

If you read nothing else on being an effective chief executive, read these 10 articles by experts in the field.
