Sir Terry Leahy - a great leader at Tesco
Sir Terry Leahy - a great leader at Tesco
SIr Terry Leahy gives a unique insight into what has made him one of the most successful CEOs ever in the retail industry.

One such insight delivers typical realism: "If they rise in the first place, all companies fall," he adds. "You have got to be realistic about that. You just want the time between when it rises and when it falls to be as long as possible. In the same way you don't want to be the last pope, you don't want to be the last CEO of a company. 

Success is about handing over a better company than the one you inherited. People who have grander or more specific visions sometimes cause problems for themselves. That was my aim - do not be the last CEO and try and hand over a better business than the one you find."
