It’s no secret that CEOs have a massive impact on company culture. They set a tone to reflect the values and convictions of the organizations they lead. But sometimes CEOs take that impulse too far and wind up unintentionally throwing their companies’ culture off kilter. Here are the four most common ways that can happen.

  1. They micromanage
    Often without meaning to, some CEOs turn to micromanaging their employees, making managers’ working lives a nightmare. There comes a time when CEOs have to trust their teams to do tasks the right way—and to give them space to breathe.

    CEOs often see their companies change rapidly and seldom intend to be so inconsistent, but it’s a culture killer nonetheless. They have to be able to communicate clearly with their team in order for everyone to stay on the same page.
  3. They outsource too much

  4. They don’t embrace newer employees
