A CEO typically has many items on their to-do list when they begin an executive role they likely worked diligently to obtain. These projects could include planning out major initiatives they will undertake, establishing the work culture they believe will generate productivity, and getting to know the employees under their watch.
Landing an executive position often takes years of hard work and terrific networking, but the reward is typically a great compensation package and the opportunity to shape a company’s long-term future.
Today’s job market is almost universally competitive. Organizations are becoming flatter and less hierarchical. As a result, securing high-level opportunities has become more challenging.
