By the middle managers obsession with constantly chasing efficiencies alone, there is little ‘slack’ for innovation and new learning. Their measurement is often based on this efficiency and effectiveness emphasis and not on generating innovation.
I’m drawing a line in the sand and proclaiming that leadership, as we know it today, will become extinct. Those who want to survive must transform themselves into mentors whose sole purpose is to breed success in those they lead.
What happened to ‘employee involvement’? Has it gone out of vogue? Has it been replaced by new initiatives? These are questions I’ve come up against recently as I’ve worked with organizations across a variety of industries.
The most pointed (and poignant) way I’ve heard the issue raised was from a gracious, intelligent, capable professional who shared:
“I feel like they’re making me sit at the kids’ table.
“ In writing about radical management, I had five big surprises, including how useful are the principles of radical management as an analytic knife to slice through hype and PR and get to the real drivers of business success.”
