“Were you DRUNK when you made this ridiculous strategic plan?”
It belongs to a top executive, who has just spent the last 5 hours berating the team, replete with nasty jibes, insults and dismissive put downs. His behavior triggers a feeding frenzy among his leadership team, who are happy to pile on their insults.
The presenter, a well respected senior leader in the organization, looks miserable, mortified as he looks around at his talented team who are witnessing this in horror.
As you may have guessed, nothing constructive emerges from the days of misery, and the organization continues to hurtle towards disaster.

THE GROWING IMPETUS FOR A DIFFERENT KIND OF LEADER
