...it eats it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I also believe we need to clarify as is <> to be in concrete "day in the life of" scenario or other. Whatever the method, we need to make the prevailing fundamental values, assumptions and old truths that conflict very very tangible and confront their behaviors if in misalignment with the strategy and key principles. All done with respect but highlighting the need for change. Communicating strategy and objectives is important but completed with concrete examples, with facts and showing the option that is offered and why it is better suited.

The Bad Behavior of Visionary Leaders

The Bad Behavior of Visionary Leaders | Human Resources | Scoop.it

Brilliant leaders like Jeff Bezos, Steve Jobs and Elon Musk often give little care and appreciation to their hard-working and loyal employees.

 

Given the extraordinary success of these men, the obvious question is whether being relentlessly hard on people, and even cruel, may get them to perform better.



Via Kenneth Mikkelsen

I would say that people don't perform because of the bad behavior. They perform better because of the high standards expected of them by visionary leaders.

What Makes a Lousy Leader?

What Makes a Lousy Leader? | Human Resources | Scoop.it

erWhat makes a lousy leader? That is easy, they do the opposite of what great leaders do. Not so fast. Our biases forget the differences between leadership we agree with, and leadership from people we do not like.

The differences rest partly in our individual perspectives. It takes a certain maturity to recognize when effective leadership occurs in opposition to our wants and needs. For the enlightened, it causes frustration, of course, but also garners respect. We have an abundance of frustration with leaders in our life and an absence of respect. We forget leadership is not static, it runs along a continuum from lousy to outstanding. Also, there is a variance between leadership tasks that may or may not be affected by time, individual experience, risk tolerance, introversion/extroversion and a host of other conditions. To me, the effective leader is the one that, given multiple variables, attributes and situations, still achieves positive results more often than not.
