Trends Talk “Meet the CEO of the Future” – Trends Information Services

Each week, the editorial staff of Trends-Tendances and Canal Z invites a personality from the economic, political or academic world for a long one-on-one interview. This week, Amid Faljaoui receives Axel Smits, Michel Mersch and Michel Halet, three Belgian CEOs, as part of the survey on the CEO of tomorrow that Trends-Tendances carried out with PwC.

On September 30, Trends-Tendances devoted its coverage to the results of a survey called “Meet the CEO of the Future” carried out jointly with PwC, one of the Big Four global consultancy. The idea was, after 18 months of managing the health crisis head on the handlebars, to take a break and look to the future. How, tomorrow, will companies have to be managed? What qualities and skills will the CEOs of tomorrow have to demonstrate?

In this week’s Trends Talk, Amid Faljaoui, editorial director of Trends-Tendances, receives three Belgian CEOs to discuss the results of this vast survey: Axel Smits (PwC), Michel Mersch (NestlĂ© Belgilux) and Michel Halet (Partena professional). Together, they paint the portrait of the boss of tomorrow: less authoritarian, more inspiring, more intuitive, more humble and more empathetic. The complexity of an economic world in perpetual motion and which drifts from crisis to crisis requires us to call on collective intelligence to respond quickly to the challenges posed. This collective intelligence is based on the autonomy and trust granted to employees, trust and autonomy which the pandemic has confirmed that they are worthy of.

During the discussion, the three business leaders give, based on their own experience, their definition of an inspiring and empathetic leader. They insist, also and above all, on the need to be in the doing story rather than the storytelling and make sense. What Simon Sinek calls the Why. It has become central in business today.
