The Clorox Company's Benno Dorer, the most "beloved" CEO in the U.S., according to a recent Glassdoor survey, says the No. 1 piece of career advice he gives people is to "forge your own path."
Dorer, who received a 99 percent approval rating from employees surveyed for the job site's Employees' Choice Awards, says, "One thing that I tell people is that there's no blueprint. There is no one-size-fits-all."
"I always tell people to be courageous and to forge your own path, versus waiting for someone or the company to forge the path for you," says Dorer. "I think that is the single most important thing, not just in business but, frankly, in life."
Glassdoor's survey determined the most beloved CEOs across the country based on anonymous, voluntary feedback. Employees also completed a company review, which included questions about "their CEO's leadership, along with insight into their job, work environment and employer over the past year."
