The transition to CEO brings a new identity
The journey to becoming a CEO involves a profound shift in self-image and a change in attitudes and behaviors. This transition brings about a liminal experience, where the perception of oneself evolves. Executives often find that time becomes their scarcest asset, leading to a constant drive for productivity. However, it is crucial for CEOs to reserve time for personal reflection and the well-being of their company. The transition to CEO requires not only an initial identity change but also a later one that involves trusting and empowering the team. By aligning behaviors with the new identity, leaders can establish lasting changes. Moreover, it is important to have a sustainable underlying identity based on core values rather than external achievements or status.
