Transitioning Out of the CEO Role with S'well Founder Sarah Kauss

Sarah is the founder of S’well, maker of arguably the world’s best water bottles. Sarah and I talk about her realization she no longer wanted to stay in the CEO role at the company she founded as well as her decision to eventually conduct the search for a new CEO openly on social media. We also explore leading a team through transition and how to find support in your own big questions.

About the Podcast

The Sanity Pod
Honest, human stories from the front lines of startup life
It's hard to start companies, it's difficult to lead, and we all have moments where we are convinced everyone else has it pulled together and that we must be the only sucker in the room.

This is a place for those stories and that kind of honesty. Honest, human stories from the front lines of startup life.

The more we are real with one another, the more we are each able to normalize the ups and downs of the entrepreneurial experience. And the more we can each quiet our inner voices of self-criticism and begin to step into the roles we were meant to play.

Thank you for joining us. We are so glad you are here.
