What will it take to redesign and reinvigorate American higher education?
I'm not sure I agree with all of the recommendations in this article, but at the heart of it is a good question-- just what do we want our institutions of higher education to accomplish? You are likely to get different answers if you ask the board of trustees, administration, faculty members, and students that question.
Those who feel no remorse or empathy and only work for their own gain to the detriment of others could warrant the title of psychopath. There is a percentage of our population that is: uncaring, shallow, irresponsible, insincere, overconfident, inattentive, selfish and sometimes violent.
I admit being a bit bewildered by those who perceive they have "mastered" leadership. Different levels of an organization require different skills and behaviors. Leader development is a lifelong endeavor.
The greatest leaders are the ones who run organizations that truly care for their employees’ and customers’ health, happiness, and wellbeing.
Great leadership is probably a combination of situation and individual contributions. Where, for example, would Lincoln have been without the American Civil War? Does the crucible of the situation make the leader or does the leader transcend the situation?
How many of us can relate to the movie Office Space and the infamous boss Bill Lumbergh? Most people would say that they can easily point to a boss that they currently have or have had who could have served as a role model for the movie character....
Office Space is a movie that I use in my repertoire of leadership (or anti-leadership) films.

I am a fan of this sort of information graphic. I suspect most of us that learn visually are.
I like Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, and there are a lot of other people who do, too. That’s because he’s an innovative business thinker with a ton of interesting ideas, but it doesn’t mean that every idea is golden.
Holocracy is an idea many of us would love to like, but increasing evidence is mounting that clearly designated systems of supra- and subordination are not just a carryover from the industrial revolution. Clear lines of authority and responsibility are helpful in accomplishing things.

How you lead matters. Accomplishing the mission is a non-negotiable requirement, but it is also important to take care of the team along the way. Those who do one but not the other should be moved aside for those who can do both.
Ian Smith's departure from Orica has put the spotlight back on CEO personality traits.
Personality is considered relatively unchanging, but just because a person has a particular type or preference, they can, and should, modify their behavior. Self-awareness plus self-regulation is a good formula for successful influence behavior.
Quartz How successful people overcome toxic bosses Quartz Bad bosses contaminate the workplace. Some do so obliviously, while others smugly manipulate their employees, using them as instruments of their own success.
We should remember that we are all part of the systems in which we live. While it may be attractive to blame toxic behavior solely on the boss, we have the opportunity and indeed the responsibility to make it better rather than worse.
Horrible bosses come in all shapes and sizes. You can probably think of a few previous bosses you’ve had the (dis)pleasure to work for.
I get this question frequently. "How do I know if I am toxic?" Since toxicity is determined by impact on the organization you have to ask your team the right questions. Since reality is in the eye of the beholder, if most of your team perceives you as toxic, you win the toxic leader badge that nobody really wants.
It’s Friday afternoon and one of your employees asks for a private meeting. Before you even close the door, she tells you she’s found another job and is leaving the company. Once you get over the shock, how should you respond?
Do not expect an employee to give you a straight answer during and exit interview. This is a place where it is appropriate to be sensitive to weak signals. Even those who are very disenchanted have a tendency to approach their exit with a sense of "let bygones be bygones."
