How Has Lockdown Changed Your Leadership Style?


I read this...

Overall, there is probably still a high sensitivity for some leaders who are looking for evidence or reasons to distrust, rather than trusting in the new ways of working. I have always focused on the analytical aspects of management and leadership, for example, working towards hitting a number, and focusing on growth... but... it is not all about focusing on the end results and forced me to change my style

I have been reading this...

Humankind: A Hopeful History Humankind: A Hopeful History Originally published: September 13, 2019 Author: Rutger Bregman
 
What is fascinating about Rutger Bregman's book is the idea that 'leadership' is both new (in the last 5% of human history) and a dysfunctional result of property, ownership, and civilisation that simply did not exist when Homo Sapiens were nomads and equal. The unfair society is actually a result of.... society! 

I cannot recommend the book enough and whether you agree with the statement above or not, the book is worth a read. If you are interested in teams, team performance and concepts like scrum which is about facilitation rather than control then you will find this book interesting.

If you have a different perspective or experience please comment below. If you are interested in teams, team performance and culture get in touch.
