Last week, I talked about the abuse of personal privileges granted to The Bank of America CEO. The CEO of a company leads by example. Enter Ingvar Kamprad. The Warren Buffett of Sweden.
You run your company like you run your life. Your employees see how you live. They follow you.
As a CEO, you don't get to clock out. You shouldn't expect to. There's a reason you make more money than anyone else.
I'm the owner of Two Maids & A Mop. We're a small company. My employees see me everyday. They see how I dress, eat, and live. My personality is the same personality that my business possesses. Why should a Fortune 500 CEO act any different than a small business owner?
One word: greed.
