CEO’s are notorious for taking control and managing their business, but at the same token, it is important for CEOs to empower their employees in a way that increases productivity, and in turn increases the overall business development.

An investment in your company by Jerry and his team meant that you were officially valuable. Your company could potentially become the next big sale or even IPO.

Some of the companies Jerry and his colleagues invested in at Flatiron included: Geocities Inc., Gamesville Inc., Vertical One Inc., and The New York Times Digital. While at JPMP, leaders like ProfitLogic were high on the investment list. ProfitLogic eventually sold to Oracle.

From the basketball court to the boardroom, coaching is recognized as a critical element in the pursuit of high performance and accelerated learning. We have life coaches, parenting coaches, relationship coaches, wealth coaches, health coaches—the list goes on. And within the business world, coaching has soared in popularity, becoming the fastest growing human resource development process today. Why? Because it works!

            CEOs run organizations. They are the highest-level executive officers in the company, and their primary duties include driving revenue and profit, making major corporate decisions and managing the overall operations and resources of a company. Even if the company is small, there’s still only one person at the top responsible for those key functions.As business becomes more competitive, complex and global, the need for CEOs to expand their knowledge beyond finance and operations to sales and marketing is an imperative.
