In this world of ever-expanding corporate titles there is the CEO (Chief Executive Officer); CFO (Chief Financial Officer); CTO (Chief Technology Officer); CIO (Chief Information Officer), CPO (Chief People Officer), to name but a few.
I suspect that in many cases a lot of these fancy “CXO” (Chief — fill in the blank — Officer) titles exist so people can feel good about how high they’ve risen in their organization.
I don’t really like fancy “C” titles because titles are not what typically helps you, a contractor, run your business.
That said, I’m in favor of a new title for you.
Chief Executive Communicator.
No, it doesn’t go on your Organizational Chart, and it’s not a paying position.
It’s someone at the very top level of your company in charge of communicating where the company is going and what’s in it for those who are helping you get there.
This probably means you.
So, what do I think a really great Chief Executive Communicator must do? Glad you asked.
Here are the most five most vital things you need to do to be successful.
