Every CEO wants more time back. What they plan to do with the extra time varies. They may want to work fewer hours, take more vacations, or utilize their time to focus on revenue-generating tasks rather than tasks that don’t bring in revenue. I believe CEOs are truly in their CEO role when they are focusing on content creation, product creation, strategy, sales, and networking. When their plate is full, they can’t do that. By bringing in operations support, they can use their time on more strategic items.
