Minter Dialogue with Carolyn Dewar

Carolyn Dewar is a senior partner at McKinsey, who founded and co-leads the McKinsey CEO and Board Excellence service line, in which role she advises many Fortune 100 CEOs. She has published more than 30 articles in the Harvard Business Review and McKinsey Quarterly, and is a frequent keynote speaker. Her latest book, “CEO EXCELLENCE, The Six Mindsets That Distinguish the Best Leaders from the Rest,” published by Scribner, was co-written with her fellow McKinsey senior partners, Scott Keller and Vik Malhotra. In this conversation, we discuss special insights from her interviews with CEOs, having the right mindset for tomorrow’s challenges, differences between male and female leaders, authenticity and flexibility.
