Forbes recently published an article featuring Moshe Cohen, Senior Lecturer of Management and Organizations, discussing the worsening crises facing Twitter under Elon Musk’s new ownership.
The story focuses on the chaos, impulsiveness, and lack of self-discipline that have imperiled Twitter’s future since its purchase by Musk. While a healthy ego can help business executives buy, start, and lead companies with confidence, experts warn that an unchecked ego can lead to a crisis that threatens an organization’s future. As Moshe pointed out, egos often create blind spots, leaving leaders unaware of their impact on the business and others around them.
Impulsive and contradictory decisions can lead to the destruction of organizations, careers, and reputations, as well as affect management and employees’ ability to work together effectively.
