How Not to Get Fired As a PE-Backed CEO

Read the Ebook


You’ve all heard the story. Private equity funds a company…and there goes the CEO. Why does this happen?

Sometimes, it has nothing to do with the CEO and everything to do with how the private equity firm likes to run their companies. They want to bring in their own people, and there’s not much you can do about that.

Sometimes, there’s a miscommunication or mismatch early on in the acquisition process that leads to an early exit from the CEO.

But sometimes, it’s because PE firms don’t have confidence in the CEO’s skills — as the saying goes, “what got us here won’t get us there.”

Don’t let this happen to you.


Filled with top tips from three of our world-class coaches, all former CEOs at PE-backed companies, this five-step playbook will help any CEO succeed with private equity partners at the table, so you’re not left behind, including:

Start with a winning mindset
Have a growth plan
Plan to be off-plan
Build the right team
And more!

Remember: There are three kinds of people. Those who Make BIG Happen, those that let things happen, and those who ask, “what happened?” Which category do you want to be in?
