How can I handle a distrustful, lying, and micro-managing CEO that I am reporting to at a startup I co-founded?

Q: How can I handle a distrustful, lying, and micro-managing CEO that I am reporting to at a startup I co-founded?

Quit. If you are that upset and angry, and have also tried some time of cofounder counseling, and you still don’t trust your co-founder … it’s time to move on.

But do it gracefully, and with respect, and quietly, and with plenty of notice. And after all — your equity just might be worth something, someday.

Unless you have enough votes among the other co-founders to oust the Founder CEO, then it’s broken and the investors almost always back the CEO unless there is fraud, malfeasance, or inappropriate behaviors.
