5 Justifiable Ways Great Leaders Are Ruthless in Business

5 Justifiable Ways Great Leaders Are Ruthless in Business | Peak Performance | Scoop.it

It's often said that even the most respected leaders are considered by many to be ruthless, even brutal at times. Of course, often when leaders are perceived as merciless, that hard perception belongs to those who did not deserve any mercy.

He’s also observed that scientific research on the brain reveals what his grandma knew all along.

Effective leadership is a combination of common sense, patience and emotional iq. Similar to things you learn in kindergarten. My favorite McNulty thought is the one on Let me sit with that for a bit. Just because you aren’t doing something, it doesn’t mean that your brain isn’t working.
