3 Questions Investors Ask Themselves When Evaluating a CEO | HBR

Must Read

The communication style and presence of a CEO may affect the value of a company. According to research conducted in 2020, organizations with an excellent communicator at the helm were able to withstand the early unfavorable share price effects of the Covid-19 epidemic. Confidence and modesty meet at the confluence of authentic communication: A presentation that is excessively upbeat risks losing trust. When executives are highly motivated to “win” a conversation with investors, they may make unrealistic promises. 

This results in the Top Gun Problem: “Your ego is writing cheques that your body cannot pay.” We encourage CEOs to adopt a friendly approach (feet planted, arms above the waist, posture open and relaxed). Intentional quiet during a presentation, even a virtual one, draws in the audience and breaks up the monotony of incoming sounds. Being straightforward is also about being genuine. A CEO must be able to tell the facts effectively, even when it is difficult to hear. 

Investors like to invest in a company they comprehend and trust. It begins with what they hear from the one in charge. Before responding to queries, take a minute to consider the topic and the underlying need. A question concerning your research and development investment plan may also concern whether or not an investor can entrust you with their capital. A competent leader already has and uses these talents daily. A presentation to investors is an excellent chance to demonstrate their efficacy.
