A smart CEO knows how to make a great first impression.
This first impression is so important because the direction of progress is critical.
It is critical because people, both internal and external, are watching – waiting to be told what to think.
What will the new CEO do out of the gate?
It’s about perception.
Smart CEOs try to create visible victories within days of taking the job, to set the tone. It’s all about the psychology.
-Scott Adams, Win Bigly
A new CEO can give investors, employees, and customers a chance to change their minds.
And a great CEO is perceptive enough to take advantage of this opportunity.
Adams closes with this:
Keep an eye out for the new-CEO move at your workplace, and sometimes in government. When you see it executed right, optimism is warranted. Even if the critics miss the show.
