Are There Any “REAL” Leaders Left?
Look, I know you’re obviously smart enough to question what you have been fed by the media and social propaganda because you are reading this…
You probably know about the concept of cause and effect, AKA causality. It’s the relationship between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), when the effect is the direct result of the event.
For instance, if you hit your thumb with a hammer (the cause), your thumb is going to hurt (the effect.) Often we can figure out the cause simply by looking at the effect. In this example, if you see a smashed thumb and a hammer nearby, you can be pretty confident that the cause of the injury was the hammer.
But when it comes to people, particularly in relation to corporate culture and specifically declining innovation cause and effect can get more than a little fuzzy.
In an earlier article, I spoke about loyalty being the #1 issue facing corporate leaders today. In it, I explained that “fear of conflict” often lies at the root of loyalty issues because when employees don’t know how to handle conflict, loyalty erodes faster than a sandbag in a tidal wave.
