To Be A CEO You Must Think Like One

‎The Aerospace Executive Podcast: Million Dollar Career Series: If Your Goal Is To Become A CEO, You Need To Think Like One, First! w/Robert Houghton on Apple Podcasts

Many people talk about wanting to be leaders, but a very small number actually turn that dream into reality.

The harsh truth is, most people won’t become CEOs or even grow their careers to a higher level, because they’re just not thinking the right way. 

So, how does a leader think, and how are their habits different from those of the average Joe? Is there a way to change our mindsets so they’re better suited to a leadership role?

In this episode, executive recruiter and President of MR Fairfax, Robert Houghton and I are discussing the common attributes ALL great leaders have in common, and how to emulate them in our own careers.
