Uber’s Travis Kalanick is trying to get out in front of a series of bad stories about the company, including the release of a video of him arguing with an Uber driver (something the rest of us are afraid to do because we don’t want our passenger star rating to go down). “It’s clear this video is a reflection of me — and the criticism we’ve received is a stark reminder that I must fundamentally change as a leader and grow up.”
