Can you create a safe place for your CEO?


What if you could create a safe place for your CEO to be? Now that sounds funny, but I can tell you that one of the things that I am committed to in my life is making it safe for CEOs to be CEOs. You see, there’s a popular belief in organizations that when something’s wrong, blame the boss. They get blamed for everything anyway. That’s just how it is. But when a CEO loses their ability to lead and make an impact, they can’t take an organization to great places.

The revenue suffers and when revenue suffers, so do payroll dollars. So I realize that CEOs are imperfect beings, and yet, they deserve the respect of being influenced and supported. So today and everyday going forward, think to yourself, “How can I encourage my team? How can I, myself, make sure that the CEO is supported in their leadership so that they can lead you to great places?”
