Did you notice the title of this post had a question mark at the end of it? The title is asking a question.
Should it be every man for himself in leadership? Should a leader be out for himself? Should the team be out for their own good?
I think you know the answer.
The answer to the question is of course not. This would reek havoc in an organization.
No one would be concerned how their actions are affecting the bottom line. Or how the company is perceived.
They’d only be worried about their own needs.
Things get ugly when we’re out for our own.
And, yet, how often do we see this type of mindset within companies?
It’s a mindset that’s permeated workplace cultures. And leaders have been guilty of pushing their team members towards it.
