The Three Responsibilities of the CEO
Many people — from entrepreneurs to venture capitalists — have written about the role of the CEO from their perch in the business world. Here is my take on it.
As the CEO of Social Tables, I have three responsibilities:
- Vision. Lay out a vision, evangelize it, and remove any obstacles from seeing it come to life.
- People. Attract, develop, and retain the best people while nurturing and scaling a great culture.
- Customers. Meet with and speak to as many customers as possible.
The way I see it, if I am doing anything other than these three things — which is oftentimes the case — then I am not using my time as effectively as possible.
The good news is that my Staff is stronger than ever and that will allow me to let go more so I can focus on the above. 
 Staff is what we call our Executive Team.
