An organization I work with experienced tremendous, rapid business growth. Along with the typical “growing pains”, employees were overextended because programs were understaffed. Therefore, I stepped in to help front line staff.
Even the most seemingly enjoyable job can get stressful over time. And a lack of proper leadership can bring about some severe problems that can hamper a company’s culture and environment.
During my early days in the Air Force as a young non-commissioned officer, I began to wonder why airmen would feel motivated to please one leader and not another. Why “yessir” invoked positive emotion for the former and negative for the latter. How could I be the kind of leader that motivated like the former?
True leadership inspires everyone. It is crucial for any organization, regardless of its size or strength. The success of an organization largely depends on the quality of its leadership.
Leadership, in and of itself, is complex!
