How Can You Catch The Eye Of Your CEO?

I am sure most people would say they would like to catch the eye of their CEO. Most people want to be noticed. Yes there are some people who want to fly under the radar screen but I believe more want to be noticed.

Recently I spoke to the MRA Southwest Chapter in Austin and included in my presentation were ways to get noticed by your CEO and I pointed out what gets my attention:

  • Revenue – (clearly the obvious one). Revenue is king/queen in most companies
    • New Clients
    • Inactive clients
    • Large projects
    • Selling all the company’s products/services
  • Problem Solvers
    • Bring solutions to the table
    • Don’t give up
    • Always look beyond the obvious
    • Really push yourself
    • Think outside the box
  • Increase Efficiencies
    • Improve interviewer production
    • Streamline internal systems
    • Use technology
    • Forget about saying it has always been done that way!
  • Donate time to organizations
    • Shows heart and spirit
    • Shows you can multitask
    • Shows you are passionate
  • Be client-oriented
    • Go above and beyond expectations
    • Treat internal clients as important as external clients
    • Make your boss look good
  • Don’t jump to conclusions
    • Sit back and evaluate
    • Don’t assume anything
    • Get rid of “it can’t be done”
  • Be accountable
    • I made a mistake
    • Don’t always work 9-5
    • Be big picture – connect all the dots
  • Be a team player
    • Know how to be successful across different teams in your company
    • Take on special projects
  • Say what you mean – mean what you say
    • Be a GREAT communicator
    • Don’t over react
    • Don’t miss deadlines without saying something

These are the things that catch my eye.

  • What catches your eye?
  • What about your boss?
