At first blush there’s nothing unusual about the question. Leadership is measured by one’s ability to achieve results.
At issue though, comes in the process of achieving those results. For whom do you really work?
Are you looking back, over your shoulder, at those higher on the organizational chart? Or are you looking forward, at those who report to you?
In this week’s show, Claudia and I suggest that leaders who report to their teams have a better chance of achieving results in tough times than those who report to their official bosses.
