Another excellent article courtesy of LinkedIn that we wanted to share with you. This one is authored by Rob Powell, Chief Executive at the Legal Ombudsman in the United Kingdom. In it, he shares nine lessons from reflecting on his first year as a new Chief Executive, as well as a snapshot of the highs and lows over the year.
Below we summarise Rob’s advice he would have given himself – it’s also incredibly helpful for others stepping up into new roles. We add the extra advice given by some of the readers of Rob’s article too.
The original Linkedin article, followed by reader comments, can be found here:
