CEOs have long understood why it's lonely at the top. Nearly everyone has a story of betrayed confidences - not always malicious in intent - but damaging nonetheless. A moment of weakness or doubt shared with the wrong colleague could have career implications.
Mr. Callos serves in the capacity as an outside advisor and a confidential sounding board to provide independent perspective. He brings a wealth of experience and an independence that's unattached to any particular outcome, something that's unobtainable when discussing options with colleagues.
At the core of our relationship is a level of trust where a CEO can safely explore concerns regarding such matters as: Board relationships, leadership impact, executive performance issues, lack of trust within the team, and potential business combinations.
