Negative Business Leaders Usually Need an Intervention
KB Woods’ CEO in Phoenix Business Journal Panel on Negative Leadership
Phoenix Business Journal’s panel discussion this week on “16 signs that leaders are negatively affecting their teams.”
According to KB Woods CEO Keith Woods, one of the things that enable that is when leaders surround themselves with ‘yes men.’
“Some leaders tend to surround themselves with “yes men” and push away, or reprimand, employees who offer differing opinions. I think this is due to a leader’s insecurity. The best way to resolve it is to confront that person through senior leadership or the company’s chairman or board. Then introduce a leadership coach or governance specialist to remediate the behavior,” according to Keith Woods.
