Can The Founder Of A Company Be A Good CEO?

It’s an age old oxymoron – the founder of a company being a talented CEO. Many founders of successful companies ultimately end up giving up the reigns to others more suited to the demands placed upon CEOs. After all, the CEO is the face of the company, and needs to build rapport with current investors and the markets alike.

However, this interesting Inc article shows that the founder of a company can make the leap into a good CEO as long as they demonstrate 4 key traits – competency, self-awareness, perspective and decision making.
