If You Are A Leader, Do You Focus On Your People?
If You Are A Leader, Do You Focus On Your People? Or Are You A Boss Watcher?
In my experience, one of the biggest sports in corporations is what I call “boss watching.”
Most front line leaders look up the organization to their middle managers to figure out what is important.
Most middle managers look up to their Directors and Vice Presidents to deem what is important.
Most Directors and Vice Presidents look upward to the group Presidents and C-Suite executives to deem what is important.
Most C-Suite executives look to the Board to deem what is important.
The culture at organizations who’s leaders play the boss watching game is similar to that of a vacuum.
Meaning, there is a tremendous amount of sucking up going on....
