What Nigerian CEOs Need to Learn From Dick Costolo As He Quits Twitter on July 1

Dick Costolo, Twitter CEO has quit his job and co-founder, Jack Dorsey has taken over. This news that broke on Thursday evening is reported by CNN to be because Dick, didn't deliver on his job.

Revenue generation and growth is at the centre of this and with a viable board and many on Wall street calling for him to step down, Dick finally acknowledged and quit graciously after 6 years as boss having risen from being a COO to CEO in 2010. Costolo will quit on July 1 and will be forfeiting his uninvested stock and no severance too and it is said he is quitting will make him even richer, I guess for integrity. The change of leadership will take effect from July 1, four days before my birthday.

Costolo has been trending on Twitter.
I was particularly intrigued by this news because I think Nigerian CEOs need to be structured and disciplined not to allow incompetence thrive if their companies will outlive them. Yes, a CEO needs to leave if he or she does not perform and is not able to bring innovations that will skyrocket revenue.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
