As a CEO, the key to improving your management skills, is to start with learning how to manage yourself. Mahatma Gandhi referred to self management as “If you want to change the world, you must begin with yourself.” If you cannot master the art of managing yourself, especially your ’emotions’, you will most probably not succeed at managing the people that report to you efficiently which can result in loss of key talents, and trickling down of the problem to all levels of your organization. The process of changing oneself personally is practically impossible and must be done by a qualified mentor, no matter how intelligent a person might be, because the act can be analogized to a dentist trying to fill his own teeth. There are professionals usually referred to as CEO Coach that can help you with the learning process depending on verification of their references, which you must not hesitate to ask for.
