A CEO must take on a high level of responsibility to make the best, well informed decisions to drive their company forward. The major decisions they make will not only affect the direction of the company but will trickle down the line, affecting personnel at every level. Not only will they be watched by their employees, but in the age of social media, customers and potential customers are watching more closely than ever as to how CEOs are presenting themselves as the most important ambassador of their brand.
When looking at what makes a successful CEO and therefore brand, calculated risk taking is a part of the job. Finding new endeavors to expand into whether they are in your industry or not, is one way a company levels up. The world is moving forward at a rapid pace and to keep up with it, companies need to constantly be innovating and creating. Pushing the boundaries of what was believed to be possible, is one way to be at the forefront of your industry. New opportunities are constantly arriving on the scene and it is up to the CEO and upper level executives to work together and decide which way to go. Having well informed discussions and converting the right information is critical to doing a job well.
Strong communication is one of the most important if not the most important trait that a CEO or anyone who finds themselves in a leadership position can have. It is no longer just about speaking to employees and leading board meetings. Communication now spans many platforms, from a social media presence to book deals. Each piece works together to create personal branding within the company. This also transcends into transparent communication, a communication that is without secrets. People gravitate and feel more comfortable with a communicator who is open and honest about what is happening within their company. This helps to not only establish trust with peers but also stimulates brand loyalty.
