Experiencing and observing so called leaders at work is very interesting. The results of their work speaks clearly on what type of leaders they are. Funny thing is they boast being a high class leader (whatever that means).
Indicators of a delusional leader:
i. team members do not know their own work procedures
ii. team members do not know their job function
iii. team members do not understand why they have to do what they do
iv. team members do not know who they report to
v. team members question the total departmental training
vi. team members unaware who is in charge
vii. team members aware of upper management conflicts
If your team are in the condition above…please do not call yourself a leader.
“Tomorrow’s leaders must be prepared to facilitate achievement by others. This means giving people more control over their own work. Less direct management of those working for you and more emphasis on their training and building their confidence are required.” ~ Brian Loton
“Certainly a leader needs a clear vision of the organization and where it is going. But a vision is of little value unless it is shared in a way so as to generate enthusiasm and commitment. Leadership and communication are inseparable.” ~ Claude Taylor
“What we should be looking for is fresh ideas of how we make moral decisions about our dealings with one another, economic, social, cultural. Economic determinism is an objectionable creed where men and women espouse it in its communist or capitalist form because it treats human beings as economic units and not as responsible persons.” ~ Dr. Davis McCaughey
