W hether you are a Founder or seasoned senior leader, when you become CEO, there is a general perception that you have made it. This is a major accomplishment that should be celebrated, but I also know the level of pressure, responsibility, and sacrifice that comes with the position.
You are now the cultural heartbeat and public representative of the company.
All your business decisions now have consequences, impacting your team, customers, and the future of the business.
Even though you may have a network of friends or colleagues, you still feel like you’re on an island by yourself and forced to make decisions.
