Tips to avoid "CEO Syndrome" and biased information sources



Have you even been in a situation where you believe the information presented to you isn't entirely correct? 

That's not to say it has been deliberately tampered with or edited in a way that dilutes any negative conclusions that may be drawn. But something is wrong and you can sense it. 

When you're not being given all the information, it could be a case of 'CEO Syndrome'.

CEO Syndrome is the result information filtering (conscious or unconscious). Staff members may filter the information they believe will cause their CEO or manager to respond negatively. 

This can create a biased source of information. Often, it's the CEO's or manager's own behavior that has created this need for a distorted reality. In this episode of The Conscious Chief Executive, we explore how CEO Syndrome is created and the three best ways to combat its development.
