Carly Fiorina is an alpha female amongst several alpha males contending for the Republican nomination for president. I don't mean that in a negative way. Almost all presidential candidates, men and women, have alpha characteristics. Barack Obama is an alpha male, as is Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Sarah Palin. Within that alpha stereotype there are positive and negative characteristics that can dominate one's leadership style. The world's greatest leaders and the world's greatest despots all have alpha characteristics.
What is being played out now on the Republican stage could be called "dominance hierarchy" a term usually applied to describing the establishment of a pecking order amongst animals...or in this case the 15 Republican contenders for the nomination. Right now Donald Trump is at the top of the pack, and as the media likes to point out, "Carly is surging". Whether Trump survives the Carson and Fiorina surges depends on how cunning they and the other contenders are to dislodge him. Each is relying on the skills that got them to where they are today. Those unique skills may be well suited in establishing the pecking order within this particular tribe, but may not serve them well in the much larger arena of American public opinion.
Carly Fiornia has an ability to articulate her beliefs succinctly and with clarity. It is probably the single reason why she was able to rise to CEO in the hierarchical establishment of Hewlett Packard...a gift of the gab. However, being so head strong in her own abilities, or maybe distrustful of her colleagues' motives, she was less able to listen to or accept their advice in determining the course of action that HP should take. She was fired from HP because of her mistakes and incompetence. The clever way she has spun her firing is an indicator that she does not accept responsibility for her own failures.
When I watched her on the debate stage, I saw an angry white women with a chip on her shoulder. She lacks emotion. She is cold hearted. She has nothing but scorn for her fellow male candidates. She hates Hillary Clinton for the successful woman that she is and that she herself is not.
I don't see her as presidential or vice presidential. In fact, she would not be a team player as a VP...more like a Dick Cheney type. There is a reason why she is considered within the business community as one of the worst CEOs all time. The media may be enamored with her style, much the same as the people who brought her up the ladder in HP, were impressed with her style. The media should dig deeper.
Carly Fiorina rose to her level of incompetence at HP. She was indeed a worst kind of CEO. We cannot let her have the reins of power of the president or vice president of the United States of America. She was a disaster for HP...she would be a bigger disaster for America.
