Doug Guthrie was a rising star in academia until 2013 when, like Icarus, he flew too close to the sun. In 2010, Guthrie was hired as the dean of the George Washington University School of Business. He had great vision but lacked people skills. In 2013, he was released as Dean and had to find a healthy mindset to move forward from a public failure.
In this podcast, Guthrie opens up about those difficult days and how to develop the necessary humbleness to lead well.
