To anyone who has ever worked with a big boss or on a large scale team, you know that you have to be a bit self-aware when dealing with people who are bigger and more powerful than you. I’ve said it many times that I’m not afraid of small people.
I know it sounds like it should be obvious, but it’s still true. Even if you can get past the intimidation, you still have to be able to get along with the people who are bigger than you and have power they don’t realize they have.
To be a good CEO, you need to be a little self-aware. Ive seen too many people who are good at their jobs but lack self awareness and understanding of their power. And that is a big mistake. There are times when a CEO or a general manager should just leave it alone and let someone else lead. That is not the way to go about your business.
Its easy to get frustrated and frustrated at the top, but the good news is this is a constant battle. The best CEOs are like a rockstar, they have no problem admitting to their ego and ego trip. In fact, they don’t even realize they do it.
If you have a CEO who struggles with his or her own ego and self awareness, the best thing to do is to just let it go and work with a new guy who has a different perspective. There are plenty of CEOs out there that will work with you to bring new ideas and fresh thinking into the company. But it will be much harder to reach those that are too self-absorbed to see their own faults.
Well, its good to see that the CEO of the world’s largest comic book company is a rockstar. He has a huge ego. So does the president of the entire comic company. This guy might not even realize he does it.
As someone who works in the business side of a company, you have to realize that you are not the only person who feels self-absorbed. There are plenty of people that work at their jobs and aren’t so self-absorbed about who their friends are or the people they work with. If you’re not careful, you too can find yourself in a position where you will have to let go of who you are to be the CEO of a company.
In America, we have the power to hire and fire people. If we let go of our self-absorption, we can hire a company executive, or even better, our president. Unfortunately, the president is elected by the same people that make our laws, so his power is limited, and its very easy to get rid of him if you have any issues with him.
In a nutshell, the powers of the presidency are limited to one person. If you have a problem with someone, you can always go after the person directly. If you are the president, you can only fire someone who is in violation of the law. If you want to fire a guy for something as stupid as “helping a drug dealer”, you need to have a problem with him, and you can’t do that without having something in common with him.
Basically, this is a game where you have to find the guy with the problem and take him out. The only way to get rid of the guy is to start a battle with him. The game starts with you getting a bunch of different people together to eliminate the guy and kill him.
