I am wondering if anyone here has shadowed an acting CEO of a startup, or know of such arrangement. By shadowing an acting CEO I mean following him/her for a specific number of days/weeks to certain meetings, working groups, and may be even board of directors meetings to see how things work, how things are handled at a startup.
I imagine that part of the agreement will deal with signing an NDA and agreeing on attending certain meetings while others could be left out.
Obviously one can gain a lot from seeing how an acting CEO works and makes decisions, but how can one make it interesting to the acting CEO? What value could be added for him/her? What are best practices in similar arrangements? I am familiar with using shadowing employees to train new team members, and imagined this could be interesting if done the right way.
