5 Surefire Ways to Become a More Approachable Leader

Leadership status puts a natural barrier between you and your employees. Learn how you can take steps to open the lines of communication.
george_reed's insight:

Being approachable is generally perceived as a good thing, but let's also consider some other sides of the coin. A bit of professional distance is a good thing, especially when there are subordinate leaders who should have a chance at solving problems at the lowest possible levels. Leaders do NOT have to be the smartest people in the room, and they can admit that they are human.

Fear As A Management Technique - Forbes

Fear As A Management Technique
Forbes
Contemporary management and leadership theory focuses on consensus, collaboration – the democratic “flat” style – rather than the top-down , “do as I say” style.
george_reed's insight:

There is a place and time for almost every leadership style. The trick is matching the style to the needs of the followers and demands of the situation. Machiavelli famously noted that it is better to be feared than loved, but let's note that his observations were made at a very different time and context. As a young soldier I was told by some very intimidating noncommissioned officers exactly what to do and when. That was during training to engage in parachute operations and it was the right approach for that audience and context. It was rule by fear and it worked quite well.

george_reed's insight:

When we consider leadership we sometimes forget that there is a two-way relationship between leaders and followers. I'm grateful for contributions that focus on the follower side of that relationship.

Cammie Dunaway's curator insight, September 29, 2014 4:51 PM

A “water bucket” leader is someone whose leadership approach can be likened to sticking a hand into a bucket of water and creating a stir by splashing it around. Eventually, the leader pulls their hand out, and when they do, the water quickly returns to it’s original state. It’s as if they never existed. Even though there was a lot of activity, in the end, the bucket of water looks no different than it did before
