WW (Weight Watchers) CEO Mindy Grossman On Handling Stress: ‘I’m not just CEO, I’m Chief Crisis Officer’

You have to find things that bring you joy and that allow you to disconnect or that put you into quietude.

I think humor is really important. I am a voracious reader and that definitely helps me. I’m a huge Adam Grant fan. “Give and Take” was one of my favorite books in terms of how I define leadership.

I need to find that quiet time where I can decompress even in the midst of a storm. I try and bring whatever level of calm and focusand even during this time, with leading an organization. I always say to people, “I’m not just the CEO, I’m the chief crisis officer, the chief communication officer and the chief hope officer.”

I tend to focus on the things I can control. I try to find some time for myself to at least process the things that are happening to where I can calmly understand how to move forward.
