292 — Bob Tinker

Podcast Summary:

Ok, Bob shares a TON of personal insights in this extended interview. The reason? You won’t find a lot of Founders who have scaled up their companies to nearly 15,000 customers and then IPO. He talks in detail about the following topics:

  • His 3 CEO stages that a Founder must transition to over the course of growth
  • How his team gave him challenging feedback and how that prompted him to change through these different stages
  • Unlearning things he had learned early on as a Founder, because they did not work leading a 500 person company
  • How he approached his board about leaving his CEO role
