Being CEO means more than just being the top boss. In fact, as Truth Collective CEO Bob Bailey puts it in his piece for Campaign US, that’s the wrong way of looking at it. He suggests we flip the traditional organizational chart on its head and think of the CEO as the “Chief Everyone Officer,” reporting to everyone in the organization instead of the other way around. This helps create a more equitable space where every employee feels valued and free to contribute new ideas.

- Power is abundant
- Fear and creativity can’t coexist
- Trust on day one
- Excess capacity is excess opportunity
