Would you rather be the CEO of a company or another executive? Please help. .
I’m asking this because I’m trying to answer this question myself. I have two incredible opportunities in front of me. I was offered to become a CEO to an incredibly small, 3-person startup. I love the vision to try and make this company not only profitable, but also successful. On the other hand, there’s a high chance that I might become an executive within my current company within the next year or two. I enjoy where I work and think I can successfully take on the role. I’m totally torn. Managers, directors, and C-suite FGB’ers — any advice?

What's the smartest thing your boss, superior or mentor has ever said to you?
Looking for inspiration! I love being a manager and I'm constantly looking for ways to help my team. I'd love to know what the smartest (or most inspiring) thing your boss, superior or mentor has ever said to you.

Awesome new job, but bosses management style is a challenge
I started a new job about 3 months ago. I love everything about it, except for my bosses management style. He seems to be a perfectionist who is resentful that he now has to be a manager. I am his only direct report. He has been extremely critical of any errors, even as minor as 1 letter being incorrectly capitalized in my work. To be fair to him, it’s never personal. It’s always about the work. Still, I spent a day in tears because he snapped at me that he “didn’t care why” when I tried to explain that he’s holding me to a standard no one else in the company is consistently meeting, not even our head of engineering. Since I started, I’ve learned a new programming language and have really been proactive in my work. The customers are happy with what I am doing. Because he’s so critical of small mistakes, I’m afraid every day that if I make a rookie mistake that actually is a big deal that he won’t have my back and will just fire me on the spot. He doesn’t seem interested in taking about anything, so I hope someone has ideas how I can earn the trust of Mr. Uptight and get him to back off of me a little so that I have a chance to succeed in my new role. I do not want to quit or go to HR because I believe this is just a difference of style and normal growing pains. I hope someone here is a Type A boss dealing with an employee who is less detail oriented and can give me some tips.
