CEO Shadowing: An Eye Opening Experience

Most people learn best by actually experiencing something. There’s just no substitute for getting your hands dirty. So while swapping tips and advice with other CEOs is certainly useful, the best way to deepen your understanding is to actually spend time with another CEO. That’s right – you need to physically visit their office for a full day. Zack Rosen recaps his CEO shadowing experience in this post at Feld Thoughts and explains exactly how to go about setting one up for yourself.

Of course it’s no small ask, admits Rosen. Tagging along over the course of a whole day with another CEO and inserting yourself into important meetings isn’t something to be taken lightly. But if it’s handled correctly it can be incredibly eye opening.
