The ethos behind leadership has changed drastically in the last 10-15 years. We’ve seen leadership become more self-centered and me-driven.
Leadership has slowly drifted away from helping others to helping the leader.
This trend has been disastrous for organizations. We’re seeing the fallout from this self-centered leadership every day.
What Went Wrong With Leadership
Growing up, my dad was loyal to the company he worked for. He was willing to put his blood, sweat, and tears into the business.
Why? Because they had his back. He also had theirs.
There’s was a sense of trust between the worker and the employer. Now, this trust has dissipated. Maybe, it’s gone altogether.
Employees now live in constant fear of their jobs. They watch owners buy newer, more expensive vehicles. All the while, they’re fed the line that the organization no longer has money for raises, bonuses, or any other perks employees used to receive.
