Abstract We’re all too aware of how CEO hubris is stamped on business failures—from Parmalat, Swissair, and Vivendi in Europe to Enron and WorldCom in the United States to the National Kidney Foundation in Singapore. Very often, hubris is the handiwork of egotistical and reckless leaders of business and state. We hear about the downfall of these individuals on almost a daily basis, and you probably have no trouble conjuring your favorite example of an executive whose excessive ego and stubborn pride has resulted in financial and professional disaster.
