In the Five Temptations of a CEO Patrick Lencioni lists five temptations of a CEO.
These temptations are all derived from psychology.
- The desire to protect the status of your own career.
- The desire to be popular.
- The need to make “correct” decisions, to achieve certainty.
- The desire for harmony.
- The desire for invulnerability.
Lencioni does a good job of creating a story around these traits to help us remember them.
