Include a skills section to highlight a small number of your strongest skills. In this section, focus on hard skills that are fundamental to your role as a CEO.
Which skills are most important for CEOs?
Key skills for CEOs include: Business management, strategic leadership, team building, strategy development, change management, business restructuring, negotiation, people management, budget management, sales, marketing.
In this section, avoid highlighting soft skills, such as organisation. Such skills don’t hold much weight unless they’re backed up with examples of times you’ve utilised the skill. As such, it’s more effective to demonstrate these skills in your CV’s career summary. This way, you can provide tangible evidence of times you have used the skills to achieve positive results.
