Poor leadership makes you angry. It breeds dissension. It fosters power struggles. It encourages indecision. The net result of poor leadership is uncertainty from your employees, customers, and shareholders.
Why, does poor leadership have an adverse effect? The author Simon Sinek notes:
Very few people or companies can clearly articulate WHY they do WHAT they do. By WHY I mean your purpose, cause or belief - WHY does your company exist? WHY do you get out of bed every morning? And WHY should anyone care?
How do you find the clarity to articulate? You can start by answering, “Why should anyone care?” It’s the Big Bang question that gives birth to a universe of What If and How questions. It’s the rally point, where power struggles, indecision, and uncertainty become unimportant.
Poor leadership is incapable of adding value to the question. It is the responsibility of transformational leadership to shepherd value, anything less leads to poor results.
