Tom has a post on The True Talk Blog about why some CEOs don’t blog. Tom contends that certain CEOs might say embarrassing things or things that may send their stock price plummeting.
I agree with Tom. I have met many CEOs that were not terrific with the public. Being an executive is pressure-packed job and you do not want your fearless leader “venting” in a public forum.
That said – a blog can certainly be a great way to provide your employees and shareholders with the transparency they deserve.
