MBL Minute: C - Suite And Smart People Or Crazy People

Episode Notes


Success as a C-Suite executive is becoming more challenging without a high level of emotional intelligence. Most executives underestimate its value and importance. There has been a high selection pressure for IQ within corporations with relatively little variation at the executive level. Conversely there has been little or no awareness or selection pressure when it comes to emotional intelligence. As a result there is a much wider range of variation in authenticity and emotional intelligence among executives within organizations.

Smart People or Crazy People

Smart people often sound like crazy people to those that are being blinded by the way things are instead of the way they are going to be. You can follow the herd or you can lead it but you cannot do both. The greater fool is the individual with the courage and naiveté to believe they can succeed where others have failed. The greater fool is actually an economic term. For the rest of us to profit, we need a greater fool. Someone who will buy long and sell short. Most people spend their life trying not to be the greater fool. The greater fool is someone with the perfect blend of self-delusion and ego to think that he can succeed where others have failed.
