Develop a CEO Mindset for Unstoppable Success

What’s the difference between an employee mindset and a CEO mindset?

  • An employee mindset focuses on finishing tasks on a to-do list
  • There is limited room for strategic thinking
  • There isn’t really a “go-getter” aspect and this mindset waits for the approval of others
  • Seldom invents new ideas, but instead, tends to go with the flow
  • Employees are not personally invested in the success of the company
  • Plans for success
  • Takes failure in their stride and learns from it
  • Is personally invested in the success of the business
  • Is open to new ideas, able to adapt quickly to changing circumstances
  • Always working on strategies to improve business
  • Thinks of ways to make more revenue and how to reduce unnecessary costs
  • Values their time
  • Is a leader
  • Works efficiently and productively
  • Has clear, defined goals for the business
