Creative Leadership

Leadership: The Crap Trickles Down Too

People are quick to point out that leaders are role models, and that employees or team members pick up great leadership traits from the top man or woman.  But the uncomfortable truth is, they also pick up bad habits as well. 

There’s a CEO that we worked with one time who was arrogant, always late for meetings, and extremely impressed with himself. We had a conference call once with one of his subordinates, and guess what?  His employee was 15 minutes late for the call, never made an apology, acted arrogant, and was pretty impressed with himself.

Leaders – be aware of the impact – good and bad – that you have on employees and subordinates.  And everyone else – make sure the traits you model from your leader are positive and transcend the workplace.  Otherwise, the poop will just continue to roll downhill…
