Full Product Description
Their stories have become a cultural fixture—train wrecks of unchecked power and arrogance. The disgraced corporate CEO offers a repeated cautionary tale, yet the mighty continue to fall. They seem to demonstrate the traits of true leaders, but headlines still blaze with tales of their exorbitance, sexual indiscretion, and intimidation. A fundamental lack of character often destroys corporate executives and the organizations they lead. Intoxicated by the trappings of their authority, these figures shrug off warning signs and dismiss advice, guided by a malfunctioning moral compass. 'Derailed' chronicles the collapse of six CEOs and the factors that drove their demise. While many of them dazzled with earnings results or branding campaigns, they failed at the primary task for which they were hired: leadership.
Tim Irwin documents the missteps of these executives who fell into the trap of believing they were larger than the companies they represented. In each case, Irwin observes a lack of authenticity, humility, and courage. Executive careers do not veer off of the rails in a single motion, but are instead the cumulative result of missed signals over a long period.
'Derailment', we find, happens long before the crash.
