Tired of Working Like A Dog?
I hear it over and over. "I'm just so busy, I am spending crazy amounts of time managing HR and people. I can't even get focused on my business!" These are the classic words of a small to mid-sized company CEO struggling to juggle all the balls in the business world. We can liken this to a dog chasing his tail and never accomplishing the goal.
As I spoke to an exasperated CEO this week, he could barely put a sentence together as we began talking about his human resources needs. I pulled up my mental note that we had to reschedule our meetings a few times because of his laborious schedule, a sign of one who is overwhelmed.
