    Would love to know where they pulled the data from- and what sample they used. Not sure I agree with Bonaparte and Reagan being models for CEOs. Are there any CEO types you admire that aren't on this list?

      Two young CEO's of today that I have recently have been impressed with is Ben Kaufman from Quirky and Aaron Levie of Box both under 30yrs of age. You can tell they have a mindset of success that is close to indestructible. In regards to them being role models that's not conclusive for me but based on the companies they have built is impressive.

      Yes there is one that comes to mind. He's not necessarily a CEO but definitely a role model for forward thinking and change and that is MLK Jr. Not exactly sure where the data was pulled from.

        Great choice. I totally agree about MLK. I would have liked to see more women on this list. I can't believe it was only Thatcher they mentioned. What about Arianna Huffington, Marissa Myers, Gina Bianchini ? All good choices.

          Alessandra you are so right. More women should have made this list. Marissa Mayer should definitely be on this list. Sadly, women do get over shadowed in the "CEO" role when in fact they are doing a much better job than most men!
