This paper looks at how a comparison of effective leadership (Darwin Smith, CEO of Kimberly-Clark) and ineffective leadership (Adolf Hitler, Fuhrer of the Third Reich) reveals the complexity of leadership. It discusses how although both men were visionary leaders, it is the duality of Smith's leadership (humility and strength) that allowed him the flexibility to be an effective leader, while Hitler's mixture of ego and determination ultimately led to organizational inflexibility and institutional paralysis in the Nazi organization.
