It is strange being a CEO. People think you have all the answers and often have little to say around you. They anxiously wait for your words. And that is why, for too many employees, the CEO is little more than a stranger behind the corner office door. It is a shame when the CEO is a mystery. Who wants to work for a company where the most important leader is little more than a title?
I know this is easier said than done. Whether you are CEO of a startup or a large multi-national, you feel vulnerable at times. And it is easy to stay veiled. But as CEO of Bond International Education Consultancy, employees’ high performance and happiness is always on my mind. It is my job to ensure that everyone is as productive as possible. To make that happen, I need to help each person be better than they ever thought was possible.
As the CEO, my job is to be omni-present to serve employees.
This goes beyond ensuring that they have all the tools they need. On a deeper level, they need to know that they can approach me without personal judgement. They need to know that I believe in their potential for greatness and that I am committed to them being better tomorrow than they are today.
