Talented leaders can be brought low by their success when self-confidence slides into over-confidence and good press leads to prideful thinking. Obstinancy, fanaticism, and feelings of invincibility can push a competent leader into a hubristic fog. In this short-form book, Dartmouth’s Sydney Finkelstein, who has studied bad decisions and business failures for more than fifteen years, tells how to avoid the seven bad habits of unsuccessful people.
