Most CEOs have a board of directors that dictates policy, focus and direction. The day to day operation of the company is left to the CEO. In other words the board decides what to do and the CEO decides how to do it.

The managers and supervisors of the company take direction and guidance from the CEO. They are deeply involved in the implementation and quality of the company’s product or service.

When you're the CEO or you're an entrepreneur I think the phrase goes “The Buck Stops Here”.  You don't have to report to anyone and you get to make all the decisions by yourself.  The problem is, who you talk to, who do you use as a sounding board, who can you talk to just to kick around some ideas?  The answer is hire a “Professional Executive Coach”.

Using anger properly is not just a learned behaviour, it is a highly developed skill. If you learn how to use it effectively, it will get you what you want most of the time. The only reason a person gets mad is because something is not the way they want it to be and they want something to change. Anger is a call for change. Used effectively anger is used to motivate or it is a catalyst to get things done. Used improperly, anger is viewed as an attack, a power struggle, it is hurtful and it is a roadblock to constructive solutions.

There are three major complaints that employees give about how they are treated. They do not feel trusted, respected, or recognized for their contribution. What we're talking about here is attitude both of the employee and the supervisor or manager.
