Speaking with Richard was a real treat for me. The company he started and still leads has had a very positive impact on my son. Richard is a self-proclaimed math enthusiast.
And, as he says, he likes to solve math problems, teach, and build things. So, when he revealed some of his personal challenges in becoming a CEO, they were very different than what you might expect. Because, as he says, "People are all different, they're snowflakes, you can't treat them as widgets, you can't treat them like math problems."
After we discussed his challenges in shifting from Founder to CEO, he and I came up with 4 actions you can take that will help you make it an easier transition.
