Straightforward guide to 11 career-derailing behaviors. While the book focuses on how destructive these behaviors are to CEOs and the organizations they tried to lead, it would seem as if these 11 things should be identified and kept in check by leaders at all levels. <BR/><BR/>Each derailing behavior is a chapter and each has a table of exemplifications of when the behavior is being properly kept in check and when it's gone too far. Further eaach chapter gives some signs and symptoms of when the behavior is over the top.<BR/><BR/>A good book, for sure. The only thing that would improve it is for the reader to take an evaluation at the beginning to then identify which of the 11 behaviors they may have and not be aware of. Then when reading the book, the reader could especially focus on those behaviors they may possess and need to keep in check.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If you wonder why all those superstar CEOs suddenly veered off course, executive coaches David L. Dotlich and Peter C. Cairo offer an engaging work of psychoanalysis to answer your question. Leadership failures can result from 11 character traits, either deep-seated personality faults or qualities that once were beneficial but became problematic. The authors offer recognizable case studies and specific advice to bolster their case that these flaws derail leaders. The culprit characteristics can seem a bit general, an inevitable concern in a book seeking simple explanations for human folly. We recommend this easy-to-digest volume to leaders and those who endure them. This is just the ticket for bosses who want to address their possible personality pitfalls before they commit career suicide.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
