Find Your Legacy: Praise in Public, Coach in Private

Chad Manske's insight:

I'm a big believer in this philosophy.  Not only do you build a stronger, more effective organization, you do so on a foundation of trust.  Those leaders who belittle or make examples of others in public shut an organization's comm channels quickly, causing guarded and slow progress.

Increasing your leadership potential | Strategy and Leadership | Scoop.it
Leadership is a behavior, not a position or a title. While some executives exhibit remarkable leadership behaviors, others simply become good managers, never fully realizing their capacity for leadership. The latter will likely have the skill and determination to operate a program and possibly even oversee an organization. It is the former, however, who will successfully guide an organization toward unlocking its true potential.

Chad Manske's insight:
Posting this because I don’t fully agree. Why? Because the author states ‘simple’ ways, though I contend the short content doesn’t go into sufficient depth to support his claim, and under appreciates the difficulty and complexity of what he posits. Though it worked in this instance I caution one can’t generalize its success to other situations. Monitor and decide carefully!
