It is not pleasant to witness the destruction of an organization through the behavior of its managers. Yet, that is what is happening to Uber. The latest blows to the company come from its CEO arguing with a driver and an accusation of sexism in the ranks. Uber has a history of aggressive behavior, daring cities to stop it from entering and competing with cab services. The company's attitude has been belligerent from the beginning, and it is catching up with it. The CEO is now on record saying he needs help in changing his leadership style. It might be too late. Uber's drivers are angry with the company and competitors like Lyft are recruiting them away. Uber's reputation is in danger, and it doesn't have much time to get its house in order.
