A friend of mine,
very successful in her own field,
is married to an executive.
At his company parties,
she promotes her husband’s causes,
hears the concerns of his major customers,
evaluates the promotability of his employees,
and at the end of the night,
presents her findings.
She is an extension of her executive husband.
She is also typical.
When you meet the CEO’s spouse,
assume that she’s representing him.
Assume that everything you say (good or bad)
will be relayed back to him.
Because it will.
At her company parties,
their roles are reversed.
Don’t underestimate executive husbands either.
