2015 4th Quarter Survey Results
PUBLISHERS NOTE: A good lawyer will tell you that you should never ask a question you don't already know the answer to. Well, that doesn't sound like much fun or interesting, so while some of the answers we received were what we expected, others were BIG surprises. Healthcare, influencers and motivation all caught us off guard.
How about you? Tell us what you think and share with your network on Twitter.
I would also like to personally thank all the people who helped make this possible. Without their involvement, support and feedback, our first survey would never have been possible. Please share the love and visit their websites to see what they might be able to help you with!
Apple clearly dominates the smartphone market among global executives. With only a quarter of executives surveyed citing Android and Windows Phone, how will Google and Microsoft step up their games to take a bite of this critical and growing market?

More than half of all executives surveyed choose a backpack over a messenger bag or purse to carry their precious cargo. With most of us carrying more than one device while on the go, the utility of the backpack continues to dominate.

What’s holding businesses back? No surprise as capital and labor continue to be a constraint for modern businesses. Corruption is clearly a challenge globally as the majority of executives surveyed agree that is a constraint to their growth.

When asked, the majority of executives surveyed said that they “Love to win.” The pursuit and glory of the win outweighs the fear of losing. So when you are talking with the “big guy” or “big gal”, make sure you play to the proper emotion.

No surprise that the company with the most cash and highest value dominates the most admired list but transportation is clearly a hot industry with new media rounding out the list. Others making the list include, Amazon, Coca Cola, Facebook, Google, IBM, Oracle and Salesforce.

Global executives are largely bullish on the outlook for both the stock market and larger global economy. 65% think that the stock market will not have a major correction before the end of the year and 62% believe the global economy will grow in 2016.

68% of those executives surveyed said that their business skills were influenced more by their father, rather than their mothers. As more women take leadership positions, expect the influence to be more evenly spread.

Who knew? Executives we surveyed say that the game, humanity and wealth (no shocker) keep them motivated. Look no further than your local teenagers Xbox for the next Donald Trump, Warren Buffett or Carl Icahn!

The BIG Question
The debate over who should provide health care continues to dominate political conversations and campaigns but the majority of executives agree or strongly agree that the government should be responsible for managing the system.
