Thom Rainer on Hubris and Leadership

This is worth reading for a number of reasons.

Rainer lists four characteristics of leader with hubris.

  1. Leaders with hubris see others as inferior.
  2. Leaders with hubris are slow to see deteriorating conditions in the organizations they lead.
  3. Leaders with hubris are quick tempered.
  4. Leaders with hubris expect to be served.

Now, that’s pretty basic. Nothing profound there, and it’s not a fancy presentation. But I think he is right on target.
