Rupert Murdoch juggernaut hits speed bumps
We recently collaborated with Cheryl Strauss Einhorn for an article in CEO Magazine called, "Finding and Fixing Your Achilles Heel."
In the article, we define several types of CEO personalities. Murdoch falls into more than one category, he's part Globalist and Executioner. Murdoch, still working hard at the age of 80, inspired a culture of results at all costs, business success before people and a far flung empire that he couldn't fully control.
Do we think that Murdoch actually authorized the privacy invasions and the unethical and illegal activities? No. But given the nature of the business culture that is created and tolerated by a CEO, excesses were bound to happen. In the article, we look at CEO types and possible ways that CEOs and other leaders can fix their flaws.
What do you think caused the Murdoch debacle?
