Driving for growth

Description

Being emotionally attached to a growth, which is pursued in action relentlessly and to which other values are either subordinated or discarded.

Case Example

The case of Elizabeth Holmes, Founder of Theranos, is a cautionary tale for all growth-orientated entrepreneurs. The singular focus on growth and the need to make commitments to investors and shareholders in order to fund that growth, can create a psychological dynamic that can lead to disaster for many ventures.
