What are the responsibilities of a CEO? I get asked this question a lot, and it’s consistently one of the top search engine terms that leads people to this blog. It’s no wonder that people are curious: The CEO role is different from any other in business. Unless someone has been specifically groomed for the role, it is unlikely that they understand what the various CEO duties are. Chief executives fulfill many roles, but there are five responsibilities of a CEO. These are the core areas where CEOs should spend the majority of their time. If not, they are not likely to succeed in the job. Here ..read more

When you decided to go to Tulane and get a degree in English, what was the plan? To be perfectly candid, when I went to Tulane, my plan was all about playing tennis. I had this vision of riding the Green Wave [Tulane’s sports program] from college into the pro circuit. But I quickly learned, as many junior tennis players learn, that there comes a point where you max out your game, and for me, that realization came sooner than expected. It wasn’t until my sophomore and junior years, amid the distractions of New Orleans, that I even started to consider a path outside of sports. But by the time ..read more

Watermen, who look astern while they row the boat ahead . . . row hard after glory but with their face another way. —Plutarch Many CEOs of early-stage companies function as what I call Rowboat CEOs. They row hard while facing backward, and they don’t do a great job of looking over their shoulder at what’s ahead. In some ways, the rowboat approach is necessary for the startup leader. When you’re getting a business off the ground, you have to supply a lot of elbow grease yourself. You must look at the here-and-now, the “what just happened?,” so you can iterate fast. After all, the distant futur ..read more

Why Honesty Really Is The Best Policy
Texas CEO Magazine
by Joel Trammell
3w ago
This is a lesson countless CEOs learn the hard way. They aren’t transparent about something—the state of the business, why the CFO was let go, what that all-day executive offsite was about—only to find that employees have created their own narrative about it. And it’s usually a negative narrative fueled by fear and rumor. This is why great CEOs aren’t just honest with employees; they are proactively transparent. They nip speculation in the bud by telling people about issues that affect the company, both positive and negative. I recently got a great demonstration of how perception distorts rea ..read more

Exceptional leaders possess a relentless determination to accomplish what needs to be done and to achieve the best long-term results, regardless of the challenges they face. While most companies aspire to have such leaders at the helm, the current economic climate has forced some organizations to undergo layoffs and cost-cutting measures. However, hiring exceptional leaders during an economic downturn can offer unique advantages over waiting for the economy to recover. This shift affects almost all industries, but notably, the technology sector is garnering the loudest headlines this year, la ..read more

House Calls Go High Tech

The wooden, glass-topped desk is covered with tidy stacks of printouts. The sheer amount of paperwork, and the orderliness imposed upon it, suggests that the man behind the desk is perpetually busy but always in control. Without a doubt, George B. Hernández Jr. is indefatigably productive, but there’s only so much control he can exert as a health system CEO, due to constant regulatory changes and financial pressures in the health-care sector. “The one thing I always say about health care is you have to be able to tolerate ambiguity because there are a lot of unknowns, and we sometimes make de ..read more

Texas CEO Magazine
by Jeff Bounds
2M ago
Austin’s Curative and Dallas’ Evry Health are trying to change employer-sponsored health coverage. Employers are using various tactics to combat runaway health-care costs, but one of their most popular methods is high-deductible insurance.

Some 55.7 percent of American private sector workers nationwide, including 55.5 percent in Texas, were enrolled in high-deductible plans in 2021. That was the highest on record since 2012, when it was 34.3 percent, according to a ValuePenguin analysis that was ..read more
