La solitude du Dirigeant / PDG

ceo-need-for-mentor-coach

When we speak of « leadership » most people unsurprisingly think of CEOship. The reality is that although CEOs are certainly leaders, there are other leaders in the organisation apart from the CEO. Every person who has the responsibility for other people, is a leader of those people, regardless of where in the organisation they find themselves. The CEO is the leader of the entire organisation, but the field supervisors, for example, are responsible for, and the leaders of, the people and functions under their control. A leader is frequently very lonely in the role – not because they don’t have people to talk to, but because they can’t say certain things to certain people. This is not about « friendship » but about effectiveness. Everybody wants to be friends with the leader – it feels nice, it empowers the friend, and it strokes the ego – and that’s all OK and fairly natural….

Comment optimiser la stratégie Réseaux Sociaux pour le PDG?

socialmedia, howto, ceo, mentoring, ceoforum

Did you know that content shared by the owner of a business receives 8x MORE engagement than content shared by a business social media account? There has been a significant shift in the way a business communicates with their customers online. It’s time for you to change your mindset, and think about social media as part of your “customer experience” journey. What does the phrase “social media” mean to you? Does it mean a way to connect with friends and family, or is it just another phrased used to define the route to market a business online? Let’s take the first word; social. The meaning of this word is often forgotten when people talk about social media and the idea of delivering a social experience. Just like Scott Cook said; “A brand is no longer what we tell the customer it is. It is what customers tell each other it…

Comment savoir si on a besoin d’un Mentor?

ceo forum- mentoring - ceomentoring -gfm mentoring

People often assume that leaders automatically come up with the right answers because of the position they hold. The thought is that “they wouldn’t be leaders if they didn’t come up with the right solutions most of the time.” One would like to think so, but the reality is different. The leader of a business or organisation on Monday morning, may have ‘only’ been an executive last Friday. On Friday, they were good, perhaps very good, but not perfect. How did they become perfect over the two days between subordinate and boss roles? Leadership is as much about learning, evolution and personal growth as it is about the innate skills of leadership. The reality is, they didn’t. One of the ways that the gaps in skill, experience or world-view can be filled is by using a suitable mentor to assist the leader contemplate and make key decisions. A mentor should…

Black Friday started in the USA and now it has become normal among most UK retailers. When you have more items on sale rails than on the rest of the floor, there are a number of things you can do, however, rolling your eyes and blaming the increasingly unpredictable British weather shouldn’t be one of them. The only rolling going on should be you rolling up your sleeves and taking serious action. If you want to make more money from your stock, it’s time to start working in a different way. Please note that the comments below refer to a multilabel store however the logic applies to all mono brand stores. 1 KNOW YOUR NUMBERS In order to avoid discounting, you need to understand what you are selling each month: what are your best sellers and where are the problems in your shop?
