Most CEOs are taught to foster good relationships with their own teams, but the most successful know the value of managing relationships of every level and direction. A major part of a CEO’s job is learning how to be influential in all relationships, directing them like an orchestra. A successful CEO strives to create a thriving, healthy, vibrant culture. That means making sure people feel invested in and nurtured, and keeping the company competitive in the market. As a leader, a CEO is also an ambassador for their brand, their company, their organization. A successful CEO cultivates inquisitiveness and reminds themselves that they do not know everything about the business, no matter how much of a subject matter expert they may be. Instead, these CEOs stay curious enough to learn, and are willing to ask questions and find new answers. These CEOs look far beyond achievements because they always aspire to be more than what the world demands.
