“Executive,” as you know by now, is more than a title. It’s an environment. You now appear distant to most of those in your organization. Your job, then, along with all the other responsibilities you have acquired since moving into that corner office, is to communicate, to inspire, and to foster optimism. Read all the books, watch all the Power Point presentations on how to go about doing that. Then, come back to these simple suggestions:
It’s within your power to create an atmosphere of trust, confidence, and a greater level of comfort. When you’re trustworthy, you encourage those with whom you work to become trustworthy as well. And when people feel that they count, that they matter, and that they are heard, the stage is set for a new level of success.
You are the model. Choose to be a great one.
"The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear." Socrates
