Best Apps for CEOs & Business Leaders

Slack

If you have a virtual or globalized team that you need to keep together, Slack is a must have text-plus application. You get text, audio and video in one easy to use platform. You get to share documents between people safely and even create memes. Slack also integrates with other industry standard apps such as giphy, Drive and Dropbox.

2Do

This is one of the best all in one "get it done" mobile apps on the market today. You will never lose any of the commitments that are important to you with this app on your side. Endless functionality, add date and time shortcuts using only your keyboard, create tasks using email, and much more. 

Minute

Having a calendar app is one thing, but the ability to drill down into each meeting to create an agenda is quite another. Minute gives you the ability to plan your day in a much more robust fashion, creating an agenda for each meeting as well as for each day. You can also send your notes to the other important people in your circle in real time.

HipChat

Perhaps the next level in group salesmanship and social listening, HipChat is an app that allows for easy communication within a team. Your business leader will actually have the ability to incorporate video sharing, screen sharing and group conversations very easily with a rather simple learning curve.

The application automatically organizes all of your conversations, allows people within the conversation to share files and even adds the ability to create memes for extra measure. In many cases, the memes that are created within these conversations go on to serve as very effective marketing tools for a business.

Zoom

If you have had it with Skype for any reason, Zoom is your new option. You get HD video that is consistently top quality, and you can put up to 25 people into a single session. Not only can you view talking heads, but you can also share your screen and whiteboard as well.

Post It Plus

Post It Plus is a highly effective brainstorming and idea capture platform. You can send your digital post it notes to your group members, add notes to your original notes, and group those notes for improved organization.

Igniter

One of the most inventive and useful apps for setting goals is Igniter, an app that is geared towards helping you find your purpose. That's right - an app that has actually bottled the science of helping you find what you stand for. This app works just as well for company core value propositions as it does for individuals. 

Day One

If you are a dreamer, you need an app that helps you to capture these ideas quickly and easily. You never know which one will be the million dollar seller, and keeping them organized is exactly what Day One does. You will actually help yourself to develop a routine for the practice of reflection, a must have for future CEOs.
