In “Big Boys, Big Egos and Strategic Intelligence”, the authors describe how narcissism can have productive and destructive influences on organizational outcomes. Narcissism can also be measured with objective variables. Countervailing power of the Board of Directors is the key mechanism to control a CEO’s narcissism. Strategic intelligence enables the Board to organize this countervailing power. Therefore, strategic intelligence makes the difference between productive and destructive narcissism. Very few companies have strategic intelligence positioned on a par with other functions that report directly to the Board. Recent scientific research is the foundation for this new book and is based on a sample of nearly 1,000 S&P 500 CEOs analyzed during the period of 1992 to 2008. “Big Boys, Big Egos and Strategic Intelligence” gives the reader useful insights into productive and destructive narcissism at the top of the business world. It includes 70 practical and compelling case studies. The book offers many new ideas on how strategic intelligence can help top managers prevail over destructive narcissism.
