When The CEO Starts Every Sentence With “I”, You Are In Trouble!! — Law #9
This is particularly true regarding legal matters. Haven’t you heard, “I will go to the Supreme Court if necessary,” – with no regard for what is good for the company.
It is with a lack of honor that the CEO says, “I did great,” when he succeeds, and “My people screwed up,” when he fails.
Other typical comments: “I am the only one who comes up with original thoughts,” and including in a condescending manner, “Why am I the only one who can solve the problem?”
