The Psychopath in the C-Suite

The Psychopath in the C-Suite | Startup Knowledge | Scoop.it

Corporate genius or psychopath? It’s a thin line that divides them. Most people who work in companies run afoul of such a person at least once during their career. Some rise to astonishing heights, and they can cause enormous damage. Dealing with them can be tricky, but here are some tips.

Vicki Kolovou's insight:

Bob Sutton, a professor of management science and engineering at Stanford University, has been writing for years about corporate types that he calls assholes. “Based on what I've seen in law firms, corporate America, and Silicon Valley start-ups,” he observed in a 2007 interview with Inc. magazine, “there's no danger that companies are going to stop hiring assholes.”

Startup Diaries: The Scenic Route from Goa to London | The Next Women - Business Magazine

Startup Diaries: The Scenic Route from Goa to London | The Next Women - Business Magazine | Startup Knowledge | Scoop.it

I could never have imagined 4 years ago that I would be sitting here writing about my experiences with Co-founder Carmina Dumitrascu of our pursuit to launch an innovative health and wellbeing concept in London, followed by New York City.

I wanted to take this first piece to write about how I got to where I am today, a journey riddled with twists, turns, detours, and surprises (some good, some not so good). It’s been anything but lackluster and very happy to report that this venture is on the entrepreneurial highway to launching (Estimated Time of Arrival: Spring 2013).

The 7 Most Common Ways Women Limit (and Sabotage) Their Success - Forbes

The 7 Most Common Ways Women Limit (and Sabotage) Their Success - Forbes | Startup Knowledge | Scoop.it
Every day, women chronically undervalue themselves, leaving money on the table and sabotaging their success. Learn the 7 most common ways women undermine their success and growth.
Vicki Kolovou's insight:

Really great points. First time I've read an article on women's entrepreneurship and she's nailed it: "Unfortunately, women who are new to business often take outside input to the nth degree and simply can’t stop themselves from searching for answers outside themselves.  Particularly in start-ups and entrepreneurial ventures, women are buying the advice of marketing and business “gurus” by the millions, and often getting cheated in the process.  The core issue is that – at a certain point – YOU have to do the work.  You need to stop asking for outside input, and marshal your own internal resources and strengths to get going, and do what you know has to be done."
