Procter & Gamble CEO David Taylor Needs To Keep 5 Things In Mind To Succeed

October 14, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
David Taylor, Procter & Gamble’s recently appointed CEO, needs to keep several things in mind in order to have a successful and long tenure as leader of the company. Taylor needs to learn from his company’s history, as well as making the best use of outgoing CEO and current executive chairman A.G. Lafley, while avoiding mixed signals and conflicting direction. Also, he must not believe that the lessons and experiences that helped bring him to being CEO are good enough; he must keep in mind the need to keep on learning and ensuring an effective information and communication system for him and the rest of the company. He also needs to start thinking as if he was hired from outside the company, while retaining the lessons he learned as an insider and career executive. He must also learn when and how to ask for, accept, and use advice.
