Leader “type”

Gordon Ramsey

You know that you are working with a leader,when they…..

  • are serious about making an impact
  • get stressed but don’t shout
  • acknowledge failure publicly
  • don’t hoard knowledge
  • self deprecate
  • check how you slept when your kid is sick
  • don’t create factual fog to justify their instinctive decisions
  • don’t hog the limelight
  • admit when they don’t have a clue
  • don’t ridicule others,when they have
  • tell you,how to tell that the bacon is done
  • don’t throw you under the bus
  • and don’t throw you under the bus (when you are not in that meeting)
  • are smart enough, to sense which way the political wind is blowing
  • and are brave enough,to face it
  • praise (and it feels genuine)
  • turnaround and smile (even though you interrupted their email draft)

How do you tell whether you work for a leader type ?
