Mitch Pisik, CEO and President of TM International, is my guest. My questions:

  • Tell me about your last few months as new CEO of an established company, how you got the assignment, what you initially thought was needed, what you now think is needed.
  • As a CEO, your primary deliverables to the organization include [1] creating strategy, [2] setting the budget, [3] creating the culture, [4] recruiting/developing a senior team, and [5] improving yourself as a leader. 
  • Which of those is easiest for you? Which one has been most challenging? 
  • If you knew 20 years ago what you know today, what would you have done differently? What lesson is the most powerful for you ? 
  • How important has it been for you to know your own blind spots? What have you done about them?
