Average vs. Extraordinary CEO: Which One are You?

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.48″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.15″]The word average speaks to common, mundane, and ordinary. Average is “just getting by.” The problem with the word average is that it accepts results far below what is possible. Average resigns itself to half-hearted performance and uninspired work ethic.

The good news is it does not take much to move from average to extraordinary. Elon Musk once said, “I think it’s possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary.”

As a CEO, the first step from moving from average to extraordinary is simply making the decision to do so. It is resolving that you want more for yourself, your staff, and your business.

Once you make that decision, a world of possibilities opens up to you for improvement and massive growth. To assess where you rate as a CEO, look at the list below and see which column you tend to favor.
