Top definition
When people in administrative, leadership, and coaching roles disguise their incompetence with ego and hubris, often successfully warding off questions or criticism until they have done significant damage to the business.

"Leaders" who use the cloak of ego are often on to their next job before the damage they did at the last one is fully realized.
"Man, the head football coach at my alma mater is just killing the program. He can't win, he can't recruit..."

"Doesn't matter. He has a cloak of ego. Everyone buys into it; the administration, the boosters...you're stuck for five years, easily."
