why Engineers make great CEOs so this is the question!
Not only CEO s but in every field,if you will go for Management,Civil Services,Arts Engineers are really good in every field so we analysed why this happens and what is the reason behind it!
It might make sense that engineers rise to the CEO role in technology companies but HBR found strong performing engineer-CEO s at non-engineering companies like Anheuser-Busch InBev and Intercontinental Exchange. So it’s clear engineers possess certain characteristics that make them well suited for the role of CEO.
No doubt the Education and Experience of engineers is unique. They have exceptional good knowlodge of science,Math and Technology,this puts engineers on the front lines of solving challenging problems and doing the things that others say can’t be done.
Engineers are really good with imaginative as well as mathematical skills that makes them to solve any kind of analytical problem at par.They are very good at pressure Handling and don’t give up easily(anyone studying useless subjects like EVS and Biology in Engineering will no doubt will deal with anything with no pressure).So this is the reason they never give up no matter what situation is,and make really big CEOs.
