Leadership – or that sinking feeling?
This is a short follow on from my ‘Good Vibrations’ post and it’s about coming back to basics. What kind of qualities are you going to need to have in order to have staff stick around and for you to create the kind of culture or ‘vibe’ you want in your business? Peter’s summary is terrific.
If the boss is consistent = he/she is approachable.
If the boss is moody = he/she is unapproachable.
Yelling at staff leads to staff not taking risks & making decisions.
Staff not taking risks/making decisions leads to decisions being left to the boss.
Decisions being left to the boss leads to the boss micromanaging.
This all causes stagnation. And makes for one of those nasty situations where staff turnover is through the roof and the boss is a stressed out nutjob.
Yuk. No thanks. Watch the video – don’t be a tool.
