Some great points (blindspots) of being a CEO. This post is not just aimed at CEO’s there are some great points made from people under CEO’s.
“You tell your employees that your door is always open, that you want to hear their honest feedback, that you can handle the truth…and yet it doesn’t seem enough. You’re still always the last person to know anything in your company.”
The “door is always open” can be a scary prospect, walking into your bosses office and bringing up topics that you may think are above you. It’s the way you approach the topic and the tone you bring to the conversation, don’t be scared to walk into their office and ask for five minutes of their time.
