Big Red Car here in the ATX during SXSW, Texas bluebonnets, azaleas blooming, March Madness, and a bit of spring skiing? Is this a great country — Texas, I mean — or what?
OK, so The Boss is talking to a youngish CEO.
“I may not be cut out to be a CEO,” says the youngish CEO. “Maybe, I’m just not CEO material.”
This CEO is actually quite brilliant but the CEO-ing gig is kicking his ass right now.
The Boss listens. A lot of dealing with momentarily troubled CEOs is letting the poison out and that requires a lot of listening. Sometimes, they need to be talked in off the ledge.
