Here’s one thing I always say to my clients…

Never give up on your business because of people

You have a dream in your heart. The dream is why you started your business. You didn’t start a business to manage people or have employees. But here you are… trying to figure it out so the dream of your business can be realized. Dealing with team doesn’t have to be a roadblock to your personal happiness or business’ success!

My name is Kris Plachy, and I’m your new CEO Advisor.

The mission of my business is to prove the power of one thriving woman.

I believe that you are a powerful and effective leader because of all of the things that are intrinsic to you as a woman, and not in spite of them.

I want to change the dialogue surrounding women in leadership so that more and more women are confident and have the resources to reach the CEO milestone in their business.

Every team problem is solvable once you think like a CEO. If you don’t think like a CEO, you think every team problem is futile.

I created How to CEO to elevate the importance of team design and leadership to accelerate your business results.

I want to multiply the number of women CEO’s on the planet and amplify their voice and impact.

Because we rock.

If you want to transform the business and your team, you have to be willing to transform the woman leading it.

Once you start that, that’s when the magic happens. It’s life-changing.

No one told you that growing + scaling the impact your business creates REQUIRES you to manage your team, too.

You weren’t born to be a manager.

And that’s okay.

In business, there’s a LOT of messaging out there that uses generating revenue as the end-all-be-all way to measure success.

Let me tell you the truth: Those business owners are lucky that everything is working, and their business hasn’t fallen apart yet.

Most of my clients are surprised and shocked at how their team problems can literally take over their life. Because you’ve never managed people, you don’t know how to create a culture. And you have people who make mistakes and don’t follow through.

So many women business owners experience the exact same obstacles and challenges when it comes to leading our businesses and leading our teams.

Yet, we rarely talk about them.

We feel alone.

You don’t have to do it alone.
In fact, you shouldn’t do it alone.

It’s time to flip the script.

Here are just a FEW of the wins you could experience as a result of joining How to CEO:

  • You can actually take a vacation and trust your team to manage things while you’re away.
  • You don’t have to work as hard anymore.
  • You can hire better people, faster and have more confidence deciding to fire when you need to.
  • You start to LOVE running your business again.
  • You can create a culture where both you and your team thrive.
  • No more stressing about managing your team.
  • You can solve any team issue that arises.
  • You can finally become the confident + resilient CEO for the business you always dreamed of running.

What if you could get a solution for your most pressing team challenge… within one week?

Check out the results my clients experienced when they joined How to CEO and implemented the CEO TEAM Blueprint inside their business.

Inside How to CEO, we set you up for Total Team Transformation, and help you become a confident and resilient CEO.

CEO Mindset

How to be the leader of the team, not a player in the team. Becoming the CEO is less about the title and more about WHO we are becoming. In this introductory module, we’ll tackle the common beliefs that keep women from truly stepping into the CEO role with confidence. We’ll address imposter syndrome, entrepreneurial guilt, leadership overwhelm, and several other emotional traps that perpetuate women not fully owning their CEO-ness and their CEO-greatness.

Team Operating System

Like any other organism, the business has to have an operating system to function. Up until now, you’ve likely had ‘good’ systems that work, but they may not be scalable. We need to get to a business that has an intentional design of the vision, values, expectations and goals that create the culture you want, on purpose.

The Hiring Process

The team dictates your success. Period. The design and effort you put into it will translate into the results you achieve through others. In this module, we will learn how to identify roles needed, write the descriptions, hiring best practices and onboarding.

The Accountability Process

People want to win. In order to win, they need finish lines and goals. As the leader, you create the process by which team members celebrate or need to course correct. Learn how to hold team members accountable to roles, goals and behaviors through regular performance recognition and review. Accountability is an essential part of a high performing team. And it can be achieved with grace and transparency.

The Firing Process

Firing is never easy. But it’s especially difficult if you don’t have a firing process in place. In this module, I will teach you how to know when it’s the right time to fire, what measures you need to have in place, and how to pull the plug when it’s necessary.


Ahhh. The most frustrating of all skills to master. Or so our clients tell us! Together we will focus on and learn the best practices for how to communicate desired results. Teach employees how to read your mind and achieve results. And the difference between delegation, mis-delegating, and abdication.

Managing Difficult

Difficult people. Difficult moments. Difficult clients. Dealing with difficult things is a process and a leadership superpower that all CEOs must master. We will teach you how to handle anything that comes your way that you (initially) experience as difficult.

Plus, You’ll Receive 3 Pillars of Support as You Apply These New Strategies + Mindset Practices.

Digital classes on each module, led by Kris Plachy, along with your copy of the CEO Team Blueprint™, which provides you with the formulas that make leading and managing simple.

Supplemental, live coaching calls that aid in your learning and help you work through impromptu challenges and triage moments.

A community of your fellow women entrepreneur CEOs, who are navigating the same challenges you are and who understand what it’s like to run a business without any formal management training.

There is power in women coming together and deciding they’re ready to become the most successful and effective leader they can be.

Learning how to lead and manage your team (without wanting to throw your laptop out the window) means becoming more of who you are. We’ll help you make it happen inside of How to CEO.

See you inside the How to CEO accelerator!
