Many times I have jumped in heart first when I read about a companies culture and the view of the leadership and where they were taking their organisation. I was so excited and filled with passion to work with the views of an overseas leader or celebrity CEO that many times I failed to ask are these views aligned to my local leadership or my local boss.
Today we are seeing change at a pace not seen before. Many new leaders are being appointed and thrown in the deep end and its literally sink of swim. Some sales leaders I have seen are given a quarter to make their numbers or its into the next person. It's not healthly, but it's often reality. When I see this behaviour I know it's not the new leader where the work needs to happen but the leader of leaders.
