1. Focus on What They Love

Again, financial compensation is not the only reason people aspire to become a CEO. Yes, CEOs are typically paid well. Perhaps more importantly, they have reached a point where they have the freedom to determine the specific nature of their work.

2. Offer New Challenges

Someone who has previously served as a CEO or executive for at least one other company will need a good reason to take on a job at yours. A new challenge is one of them. If someone has risen to the position of CEO, you know they are ambitious. They enjoy acquiring new skills. They get excited when they start new projects that present unique challenges.

3. Demonstrate That You Value Work/Life Balance

It’s no secret that being a CEO is a major responsibility. Someone in this position is responsible for engaging with employees, customers, partners, and shareholders. Managing the needs of multiple stakeholders can be challenging.
