Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is taking time away from the company.
The embattled CEO has had his own bout with bad press for his aggressive management tactics. He's also been grieving for his mother, who died in late May in a boating accident that also seriously injured his father.
Kalanick's announcement came on the heels of the departure of his senior vice president and "right-hand man" Emil Michael.
Now, Uber is initiating a culture change, including more managerial oversight, fewer responsibilities for the CEO and improvements to human resources.
