The 7 Deadly Sins of a Failing Leader!

Updated: Dec 22, 2020

👿 John is a brilliant leader. Not that he is the best expert in his field - he is surrounded by experts. But he has this talent for inspiring people to go the extra mile.


👿 Pauline is struggling. She is intellectually brilliant but her impact on teams is questionable and sometimes even toxic.


👿 We all have a little bit of John and Pauline in us. I could have reversed the first names, by the way. 


👿 But how do we make sure that we don't give in to the temptation of the 7 deadly sins of a failing leader?

👿 In the next few weeks, I propose a journey to discover how Pauline has raised the bar of her leadership.


👿 And through this itinerary, I would like to suggest that you take a one-minute break to decide week after week on a practice, a behavior that needs reset.


👿 The quality of leadership is often an unfinished business, even for the best and most senior leaders. Emotion, ego, lack of self-awareness, wrong assumptions, interfere with the quality of leadership.


👿 Let's discover or rediscover the pitfalls to avoid. Let's reset our leadership as we are going through challenging times for our employees who need leadership presence more than ever. 


👋 Until next week!
