In a recent Training Unleashed Podcast, Richard and host Evan Hackel discussed Richard’s exciting idea that what companies need today is what he calls Chief Everything Officers –leaders who practice the ability to wear many hats at once and unleash the power of their associates.
What It Means to Be a Chief Everything Officer
Richard told Evan that this new kind of executive – a Chief Everything Officer – is someone who sits in an executive seat in a company but finds themself wearing many more hats than they anticipated. They’re spinning more plates than they feel like they can keep going at any one time and putting out fires all the time – forced to live in what Richard calls “a reactive state.”
“None of us wants to own that identity,” Richard told Evan. “But if we’re honest with ourselves in a moment of self-reflection, we’d say, `Yeah, I’m playing Chief Everything Officer. In any moment I could be Human Resources Officer or whatever the need may be.’”
Listen to the entire podcast to hear Richard’s tips that people can use to help build a mindset that a Chief Everything Officer needs.
A Power Tip from Richard
When asked for one tip for the audience, Richard answered, “Establish a daily practice of silence and stillness where you reflect on who you want to be and what you see. I can’t tell you how impactful that practice has been in my life as a leader. I get away from my phone and my email and use that time to set an intention.”
