Superbosses

We have all had them. Or, at least, I hope you have experienced at least one. Those incredible individuals that act as our mentors and see the potential we have yet to see in ourselves. Sydney Finkelstein’s new book, Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent is a great way to start the Fall season. Even in our current world of big data, leadership is still of primary importance.  To have leaders that are values-based is authenticity in action – they walk their talk.  When so many organizations are struggling with employee engagement, when was the last time a 360 review was conducted on your leadership? A bad leader can destroy a team, a division, or an entire organization in a very short period of time. Once you lose trust, it is almost impossible to get it back. That is why Superbosses are so important. They nurture talent, are collaborative, live their values and exhibit generosity of spirit – they never stand in your way. They inspire us, motivate us, and grow us. When we spend at least half of our life at work, having a super boss turns work into a creative playground that fosters innovation. I have had the pleasure of several of them and would and have, followed them anywhere. How many do you have in your organization?  Do you qualify?
