In this edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan talk about bosses. While it’s easy to gripe about bosses, George and Joan take a deeper look and explore the idea that the problem isn’t always just the boss – it can also be the employee and/or the workplace. Are you using your boss to make it easier for you to not take some responsibility for the problems in your organization? As they point out, it takes both parties, the leader and the follower (or the boss and the employee) to make something great happen – or conversely for bad things to happen. Thought-provoking as always!
Mentioned in the podcast: The Courageous Follower by Ira Chaleff.
