The end of big ego leadership
Abstract:In days of yore, they ruled. Back in the second half of the 1990s, when hype alone could inflate share values and stock markets were caught up in a self-perpetuating state of euphoria, CEOs of hot companies became minor celebrities. This boom-time economic environment, fuelled by the effects of globalisation, accelerated deregulation and the advent of new technology, proved to be an extremely fertile breeding ground for the monster ego. CEOs delivering quarter after quarter of mega-buck profits strutted their stuff before us all, waving their magic wands. We loved them and didn't they know it.
