Why would successful CEOs fail?

It is seen that very successful CEOs often fail when they move to a bigger company. No I am not a CEO and have never been. I make assumptions, big assumptions and here are some more. I think the following does not happen in a smaller organization, only big ones are infected:

  • Don't think everyone in your oraganization listens to you. There are a few who have their own agenda.

  • You are not the best anymore. You have peers who are equally good, in their own silos may be better.

  • Many in your organization now want you to fail. And they already have figured out where they move when you do.

  • You now tend to forget the smaller markets.

  • You are made to believe that you can't start afresh.
