Profiles in Ownership

  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Value Creation for Owners and Directors

Abstract

The literature on leadership is voluminous. Beyond military and historical figures, it mostly addresses CEOs and managers. This book shifts the emphasis to the leadership exercised by owners and directors. In this chapter we present five distinct ownership profiles to illustrate the wide diversity of owners, as well as the events that trigger individuals to enter and fully commit to active ownership.
