Overrated: Business ‘superstars’
This article, although about CEO's, made me think about leadership styles and lean. Whether a CEO or not, do the most effective managers always try to be in the limelight? Is the typical mindset one that managers do everything, especially executive leaders, when a company succeeds? How many times do we heard about the CEO who “cut inventory” or “improved efficiency.” I'd argue it's a rare CEO who truly does these things themself. How does Toyota's CEO, Fujio Cho, fit in? Although Toyota is a widely admired company and financially very successful, why do we not see him on the cover of Newsweek? Is that because of a humility that comes with being a “lean leader”? What do you think?
