If you are a "new" CEO, is good to remind yourself about your own job description. In brief, do not do what your staffs can do.
In particular, here are 4 fundamental tasks CEO should do:
1. Defining and interpreting the meaningful outside
2. What business are we in and what business are we not in?
3. Balancing sufficient yield in the present with necessary investment in the future
4. Shaping the values and standards of the organization
Sound familiar? It is drawn based on Drucker's observation. You can read more about these tasks in this "old" article by A.G. Lafley (former Chairman and CEO of Procter and Gamble).
