Have you ever thought why so many bosses are actually morons?
Coz, performance has been the deciding metric for someone to make a boss. And unfortunately performance alone cannot make someone a good boss.
The fundamental metrics we hold to promote someone to a leadership position is experience and most importantly, achievements.
No matter what means he/she used to meet those achievements or how many team members he/she sacrificed on the way up, the end result is what that matters, as that is the only metric that makes someone a Leader.
Can a system get more rotten than this?
An achiever need not be an influencer. An achiever need not be an inspirer. An achiever need not create more leaders.
But a Leader does.
When you promote a so-called vicious performer as a Leader, you don't build teams, you only build assembly lines.
People will come, work and leave like a clockwork. You won't find life there, you won't find innovation there and sooner than you expect you won't find your business there.
Are Good Achievements directly proportional to Good Leadership?
