Poor Leadership

Many people are promoted or recruited into leadership positions without understanding the fundamental philosophy of leadership;

It’s all about people.

According to Jim Harter, Gallup’s Chief Scientist, it’s a rite of passage in most organizations to promote someone based on their performance on the job. So if you are very good at sales or accounting, or any number of specialties–and stay around a long time, the next step in your progression is to be promoted to manager.

But the talents that make a person successful in a previous, non-management role are rarely the same ones that will make them excel as managers or leaders. You are no longer responsible for doing the job when you are the leader. Instead, you are now responsible for inspiring, coaching, mentoring and motivating your team to become the best version of themselves which will help them produce their very best work.

That’s why we have many companies grossly over-managed and severely under-led. When a leader can inspire and empower their team to become the best version of themselves, they will have a group of people committed to helping the organization achieve its purpose while producing incredible results to the astonishment of many. But if you have piss-poor management and leadership, you will drive away great talent while settling for mediocrity.

That is what I have thought about and I really never shared with anyone until now. That is a great assessment of being a leader, but I also think the following:

A leader that does not give credit to his team is a person who undermines the word team.
