Becoming a CEO comes with a lot of responsibilities. You not only have to think of innovative ways to grow business but also be an exceptional leader that your team looks up to.
In this video, I share 7 golden rules that will help you become a successful CEO.
7 golden rules to become a successful CEO:
1) Sales should be in your DNA:
No matter how much you grow as a business, The CEO should never let the Sales edge in him tarnish at any point in time.
2.) User Empathy:
Focus on customer pain points & think of an out of the box idea to resolve their issues.
3.) Always focus on building relationships than on mere transactions:
Believe in growing with the customer’s success while working together for a longer term instead of focusing on short term transactions. At GoodWorkLabs, we live by this thumb rule.
4.) Become an influencer:
Put out great content that is relevant for your audience on social media and web. This kind of marketing is the most critical. When people start following you, they start trusting you and that helps immensely while building your sales strategy.
Now, this is an integral part of any business. In Vishwas Mudagal’s opinion Networking is an investment which sooner or later entitles you to reap its benefits, and he has shared a jaw-dropping experience of how he bagged a 1million dollar deal for GoodWorkLabs, through Networking.
6.) Focus on hiring the right resource:
As a company starts growing & expanding in terms of team size, most CEOs don’t prefer to spend time on hiring anymore and that’s a big problem. This as a major roadblock in terms of growing as a company and to build the right team. The CEO should actively be involved in the company’s recruitment process to hire the right kind of problem solvers &passionate people.
7.) Question the status quo in whatever you do:
A very interesting story- “The elephant and rope” is a great example of how each one of us in the industry is trapped by various mythical chains of pre-set conventional methods of limiting ourselves in terms of exploring & experimenting with something new and how we need to break free from these chains to bring a phenomenal change in our industry & this world.
