must be an original report One of the most surprising recent success stories in the corporate must be an original reportOne of the most surprising recent success stories in the corporate world is the rapid turnaround of Chrysler under the leadership of CEO Sergio Marchionne. Chrysler went bankrupt during the 2008-2009 automotive industry crisis and needed a large bailout loan from the government. But Marchionne exceeded all expectations and not only returned Chrysler to profitability within two years but also managed to repay its loan from the government six years ahead of schedule.But Marchionne is not your typical CEO. His approach to turning around Chrysler has been described as âtough loveâ and his habits of rapidly hiring and firing senior executives has raised some eyebrows. Simultaneously serving as both the CEO of Chrysler and CEO of Italian automaker Fiat, he is known as a workaholic and micromanager. Marchionneâs leadership style makes for an ideal case study due to his unique personality, and because there is plenty of articles written about him available in the Trident library and on the internet. Review the background materials on leadership traits, behaviors, and styles. Then do some research on Sergio Marchionneâs leadership style and personality. Here are some articles to get you started:Wernle, B., & Ciferri, L. (2009). Life under Marchionne: New stars, hasty exits. Automotive News, 84(6381), 1-1,42.
