The Eighth Self-Destructive Habit: When Companies Plateau Their People
August 08, 2007
In writing his book, Self-Destructive Habits of Good Companies...and How to Break Them, Sheth found seven reasons behind why successful companies have such a short life span. After publishing, he felt that companies often committed yet another 8th offense: not enabling their people to rise to the top level of their talent. Instead, either companies employ too many people and don't have challenging work for all of them, or these companies bring in outsiders who fail to connect with the existing culture such as Fiorina and Fisher and Nardelli.
