Passive Aggressive CEOs Destroy Companies

A framework for managing difficult team discussions.

I’ve had two calls in the last week or so from CEOs I speak with often, both related to the same thing — not acting quickly enough to defuse real turmoil within the executive team. That’s just in the last week or so. This is an incredibly common issue that can have disastrous effects on a startup.

  1. What do you prepose we do about it?
  2. How long should we give it?
  3. What do you think we should do if it doesn’t succeed?
