Often Forgotten

“When you were made a leader,  you weren’t given a crown; you were given the responsibility to bring out the best in others”

-Jack Welch

Unfortunately for some, the title becomes a tool to bully co-workers while exempting themselves from basic rules of the organization. “Yes men/women” rarely make good leaders, as self-preservation takes precedence over mentoring and encouraging success in others. Yet, they are often the ones promoted by their own insecure leaders. The likely result is organizational disintegration, turnover and Nero fiddling while Rome burns, hoping for the fire department to show up.
