The Executive and the Elephant: A Leader's Guide for Building Inner Excellence (Audio Download): : Richard L. Daft, Bob Dunsworth, Inc. John Wiley & Sons: Books/5(2).   The “executive” is objective, rational, and responsible and the “elephant” is emotion-driven, impulsive and habitual. Daft said that truly successful leaders must learn to recognize both sides and follow practical exercises to learn to control their inner elephant and ultimately change a weakness in their behavior.

One significant problem with the inner elephant is that it hinders people's ability to see reality. Most individuals perceive the world based on their needs and biases, rather than on external events. The inner executive must deal with the inner elephant's tendency to judge others and the self, to create illusions, and to defend the self.   Buy Featured Book Title Elephant Company Now Williams, the elephant saw, was as broken as Bandoola had been then.
