Why Developing a CEO Mindset Never Ends
Most successful business owners will tell you that working on their own leadership skills and personal development is a constant activity. Even experienced CEO's know that it's part of their responsibility to always be honing and developing their CEO skills. For women online entrepreneurs, who often work in isolation and at some physical distance from their team members, it's tricky to keep in mind that leading with your CEO skills is a key part of what you do to lead your business forward.
Beginning CEO's quickly find that developing their CEO skills often means letting go of ingrained belief systems, learning how to handle constant feelings of overwhelm and uncertainty, and boosting self-confidence.
I developed a special program for women entrepreneurs, the CEO Circle Community, specifically to support women who want to learn CEO strategies, improve their decision making skills, and feel confident in leading their business. For a very reasonable monthly membership fee you'll find training, discussion, a closed and confidential community, and access to one-on-one consultation when you need it at a discounted rate. Membership is open right now, so please get the details here and see if it's a good fit for your stage of growth as a business owner.Developing a CEO mindset gives you an entirely new set of tools to use in running and expanding your business.

How does a CEO lead her business?
- If you have developed your CEO skills you know that CEOs use self-discipline to remain focused and consistent in their actions.
- You've developed the habit of being honest with yourself, and being open to seeing where you need to grow so that your business benefits from your business skills.
- You practice taking consistent action, so that what you say you value, you do. CEOs learn it hurts their business to say one thing, but behave in another.
- You catch yourself before you react to a situation, instead waiting and developing a considered and strategic response.
- You're willing to recognize where you have weaknesses, and take steps to improve in those areas through mentoring, coaching, or personal development classes.

It's easy enough to go find a list of CEO traits, but knowing those traits and seeing how they specifically work for you takes support and a certain mindset. For instance, I often read that a CEO is fearless. Actually, I don't believe that. I think many CEOs have a fair amount of fear about their company's future, but they have trained themselves to act despite their fear rather than letting it paralyze their decision making. That's a top skill for CEOs.
Other commonly quoted CEO traits are these:
- Willingness to plan rather than flying by the seat of their pants.
- Watching the operating expenses for their business and understanding how to prevent their costs from climbing out of control.
- Providing customer service that your customers will talk about to other prospects.
- Being willing to pull together a reasonable marketing plan and carry out marketing activities on a consistent, committed basis.
- Keeping your vision clear about your brand and what you offer your customers.
- Accepting that change always happens and making decisions with that truth in mind.
- Listening to team members and customers openly
- Being a constant learner
- Understanding that networking with other business owners who can be centers of influence for your business is a top priority.
The CEO Circle Community provides you with a solid option for developing a CEO mindset and keeping your business simple and effective. If that would be helpful for you please get the details and join us while membership is open.
