Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is the highest position one can attain in an organization. The CEO is responsible for making major decisions that reflect the company’s culture and the interest of the people in the company.
If you wish to become an effective CEO, hereunder are some of the traits that you should possess:
As a CEO coach, I guarantee you that optimistically motivating your employees and influencing them to be creative allows you to build strong relationships with them and give birth to passionate people in the workplace.
When you’re loyal, you’re able to get others to do the same. There’s a domino effect when it comes to loyalty and the result is often positive. For one, you can build a strong trainable workforce regardless if you’re handling a huge company or a small business.
As a leader, you have to have a certain level of care and compassion for your subordinates. Doing so allows you to view the situation from different perspectives. An understanding leader is admirable.
Being able to accept that an organization is conclusive of a diverse workforce allows you to see both its strengths and weaknesses. This information helps devise plans for the company.
If you’re trusted by your employees, communication becomes easier. I’ve been with a lot of CEOs before who joined our Vistage group in New York City and most of them were able to win the hearts of their employees through trust because it assures people that they’re at the right place.
