What happens when the meaning of the term CEO changes from waiting for promotion to becoming one by stepping up yourself?
What if you feel that you should lead the people, and turning annual revenue into a monthly number is right there in your vision?
In today's episode, Farhad Niyoz talks with the founder and CEO of Jobilla Henri Nordström. They talk about Henris' journey of taking an important step and becoming the CEO. Misconceptions about the startup's purpose and why creating value is more important than exiting the company. Henri also shares his key lessons as a CEO who focuses on self-development and practical ideas for CEOs to transform their inner power.
