Tip for the Departing CEO #2

Write Your Job Description

Some people have told me that writing your own job description is more difficult then writing someone else’s.  In my experience, it’s not.  There has to be some record of what you do in general.  As someone who has been CEO for a while, you should have no problem writing a job description, but also think about how much of your time is devoted to the specific responsibilities you have.  As a small business owner, do you spend 10 hours a week meeting with your direct reports?  How much of a percentage of your time is that?  What about your time spent on Marketing?  Reading financial reports?

Maybe spend a week writing down everything that you do.  That’s an interesting process in itself.
