Author: Kets de Vries, Manfred F. R. INSEAD Area: Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise Series: Working Paper ; 94/08/ENT Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD, 1994.Language: EnglishDescription: 29 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: This article explores the way in which character traits and behavioral patterns affect leadership style. Some of the elements that make for successful leadership are presented. It is suggested that the personality of a top executive influences the strategy, corporate culture and even structure of his or her organization to such an extent that often organizations cannot perform successfully if no attention is given to a leader's intrapsychic world. A Clinical approach is used in the article to analyse how behavior on the part of a leader which may seem completely irrational may on closer inspection have an explanation and deeper rationale. The process is described by which executives can explore their core conflictual relationship themes, or inner scripts, through self-examination and through studying the lives of well-known business leaders and their companies. The theme of psychological pressure leadership emerges during this process
