Carolyn Dewar is a Senior Partner in the San Francisco office of McKinsey & Company where she founded and co-leads the firm’s CEO excellence work, coaching many Fortune 100 CEOs to maximize their effectiveness in the role and lead their organizations through pivotal moments (hyper-growth, merger, strategic shift, crisis). She has invested deeply to understand and elevate the “role of the CEO” as a critical role—one that requires intergenerational guidance, and new thoughts for the future. She plays a faculty role for a number of the firm’s client master classes for sitting CEOs and those preparing for the role.
Carolyn is a co-author of the New York Times bestseller CEO Excellence: The Six Mindsets That Distinguish the Best Leaders from the Rest. Also, among her many articles, are two of the most read McKinsey Quarterly articles of all time, “The CEO's role in leading transformation” and “The irrational side of change management”. She has also authored two foundational publications: “Performance culture imperative: A hard-nosed approach to the soft stuff” and “Breaking new ground: Making a successful transition into your new executive role”. Carolyn regularly gives keynote speeches and hosts CEO and senior executive roundtables on topics related to leadership, executive transitions, and change management.
