I came across a couple article over the past few days that I thought were most interesting… as they were polar opposites… sort of a love and hate type theme…
The first was more football than anything else… it was from Brian Dodd on Leadership. Picked some of the highlights below… agree 100%! In the military we lead leaders everyday… seemed appropriate.
Leading Leaders Is A Privilege
Leaders Want To Move People To Action
Leaders Want To Do Something Memorable
Leaders Thrive With Open Communication
Leaders Hate Mediocrity
Leaders Value Trust
Leaders “Confront Issues and Not The Person.”
Leaders Will Make Hard Decisions
Leaders Are Attracted To Other Great Leaders
As soon as I flipped the page… I came across seven things your employees hate about your leadership… and I thought… heck… that seems right as well…
Employees hate surprises.
Employees hate unfairness.
Employees hate unclear goals.
Employees hate policy disconnects.
Employees hate empty talk.
Employees hate being lectured on values.
Employees hate isolated leaders.
So… I have plenty to work on this week… any thoughts?
