In his interview with Authority Magazine, Mr. Pellegrino offers advice and answers questions on a wide range of topics, including what led him to his current career path, what people helped him along the way, funny mistakes made starting out, the importance of creating a diverse executive team, what steps need to be taken to create an equitable society, how an executive’s responsibilities differ from that of other managers, and what personality traits help or hurt in the work of becoming a CEO. In response to the question, “What are the ‘myths’ that you would like to dispel about being a CEO or executive,” Anthony responded:
“One of the biggest myths about being a CEO is that it’s all about making money. While it’s true that a company needs to be profitable, there’s much more to it than that. A CEO also needs to focus on the company’s culture, its employees, and its customers. Another myth is that CEOs are always confident and never make mistakes. The truth is that even the most successful CEOs have moments of doubt and make mistakes from time to time.”
Mr. Pellegrino also offered advice on creating a fantastic work culture:
“A great work culture starts with hiring the right people. You want to make sure that everyone you bring on shares your vision and values for the company. Once you have the right team in place, it’s important to focus on creating a positive and productive environment. This means setting clear expectations, providing adequate resources and support, and fostering open communication. It also means calibrating rewards and recognition to reinforce desired behaviors. When done well, these things will create an incredibly positive and motivating work culture that will help your business thrive.”
