Jim Collins in his book Good to Great shares that we need to get the right people in the right seats on the right bus. As leaders, we know this is crucial.
What we often forget is that we can place the wrong leaders in the wrong seats on the wrong bus and this creates more issues than having the wrong team members.
I recently came across a great quote and I don’t know who said it. The quote is
A bad leader can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation
Ouch, that stings. Especially for those of us in leadership.
There’s a huge responsibility that comes upon us as we accept the mantle of leadership. We are now in charge and we are responsible for what happens.
