Readers Respond: Lead the way, chief executive

A chief executive can be many things to many people. But what is a CEO's job, primarily?

In a poll earlier this week, we asked our readers, "which of the following is "job one" for the home improvement industry CEO?"

So far, "establish the corporate vision" is the winner at 32%.

The next important task involves the company's standing in the public eye as well: keep customers happy, at 26%.

Here are the rest of the results:

Manage change: 22%
Keep employees happy: 11%
Keep shareholders happy: 9%
