In this episode…

Dear CEO, if there’s a kink in the hose of your company’s revenue flow, what will you do about it? Are you going to put on your player hat, march straight to the frontlines to drive sales, and hopefully figure out the constraints? Or are you going to wear your analyst hat, dig into the data and figure it out? Whichever approach you take, you’ll be wearing either of the first two hats effective CEOs must wear to remove kinks in their business.

The other three hats are necessary to fix the business areas where the kink exists. Kinks can live in your business model, talent, or processes and systems. Ready to learn more about these business hats? 

Listen to this episode of the Inspired Insider Podcast with Dr. Jeremy Weisz featuring the CEO of the Inc. CEO Project, Jim Schleckser. They discuss the five hats great CEOs wear, how to delegate without losing sleep, reworking your business model, hiring tips, and more!
