HELPING ENTREPRENEURIAL FOUNDERS WITHOUT BREAKING THEIR SPIRIT
Show Notes

This week we are joined by Robert Sher, Founding Principal of CEO to CEO, A consulting firm helping mid-size CEO's build their skills to lead their companies to exceptional performance.
Our conversation examines  CEO's who have founded a successful business because they are great engineers or have a particular talent, and now that the business is starting to scale, or there is interest from a private equity investor, they find themselves to unable separate from their entrepreneurial roots and adopt to the expected leadership model.

Robert makes the point that trying to change such individuals is counter-productive and what is really needed is to work with them and aim for incremental change that doesn't in any way damage their entrepreneurial spirit and value to the business.

Robert is based in San Ramon, California and for those who would like to know more he can be contacted through the CEO to CEO corporate website or via email [email protected]
