The 7 Habits of Spectactularly Unsuccessful Executives (and Deans)

Just came across this article (The 7 habits of Spectacularly Unsuccessful Executives) in Forbes. It seems like the same characteristics can be applied to Deans (and College Presidents), since they're just executives of a different type. Read the whole thing, but here's the 7 habits (in some cases, I've edited them a bit)
  1. They see themselves (and their organizations) dominating their environment
  2. They identify so completely with the organization that there is no clear boundary between their personal interests and their corporation’s interests
  3. They think they have all the answers
  4. They ruthlessly eliminate anyone who isn’t completely behind them
  5. They are consummate spokespersons, obsessed with the company image
  6. They underestimate obstacles
  7. They stubbornly rely on what worked for them in the past
I've known deans that embody 2, 3, 4, and 6. How about you?

Right here is the perfect webpage for anyone who really
wants to understand this topic. You realize a whole lot
its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally would want
to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a
topic that's been discussed for decades. Great stuff, just great!
