The seven habits of spectacularly unsuccessful executives

From the link:

Here is the list of the 7 habits:
  1. They see themselves and their companies as dominating their environment
  2. They identify so completely with the company that there is no clear boundary between personal interested and their corporation's interest
  3. They think they have all the answers
  4. They ruthlessly eliminate anyone who isn't completely behind them
  5. They are consummate spokespersons obsessed with the company image
  6. They underestimate obstacles
  7. They stubbornly rely on what worked for them in the past
Here is a list of the warning signs for the above 7 habits:
  1. A lack of respect
  2. A question of character
  3. A leader without followers
  4. Executive departures
  5. Blatant attention seeking
