Everything You Need to Crush It as a Chief of Staff

If our Go Horizontal exploration into the Chief of Staff role has taught us anything, it’s this: Chiefs of Staff are everywhere.

As the pursuers that are doing everything, everywhere, Chiefs of Staff have to start with something, somewhere on the road to improvement. This blog serves as collection of resources to help Chiefs of Staff at any age, level of experience, or industry. 

Every resource is dedicated to helping Chiefs of Staff make others effective. This fundamental purpose guides the narratives and benefits in each resource.

Creating a framework for said effectiveness (hint hint – OKRs). Outcome versus output mentality. We cover these things and more.
