    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"

  • Is There Such A Thing As Bad Leadership?

    [caption id="attachment_2608" align="alignleft" width="345" caption="Does Bad Leadership Exist?"]Being a leader[/caption]

     

    Some people are born with that natural ability of being a leader. Whether its organizing a group project, leading a discussion or something as normal as planning a vacation, leadership is all around us. Rajeev Peshawaria of Forbes discusses how bad leadership can sometimes be an effective way of getting others engaged and involved in what you're are discussing.

    If you are leading a group discussion on the subject of leadership and want people to start participating actively right from the word go, open the session by making the following statement: There is no such thing as bad leadership.

    Almost immediately, several people will challenge you, and offer many examples of bad leadership.  Someone will invariably bring up examples like Hitler, Stalin, Robert Mugabe and Saddam Hussein.  If you nudge the group a bit, they will also start talking about all the bad leaders they have encountered in their corporate careers.  In fact, be prepared, because the discussion can easily get very heated and emotional.  A participant in one of my seminars got really agitated in the first 20 minutes of the program, and angrily told me how I had no idea what it was like to work for all those bad leaders he has had to suffer in his career.

    I don’t disagree that most of the examples given are of people that stood for bad and immoral ideas, or treated others without the respect and dignity that every human deserves.  I also don’t underestimate the damage such people cause to society.  The only question I have is, were these people leaders in the first place? Or were they simply people who somehow found themselves in positions of power through brute force, cunning, chance, or all three?
