Are You More Than A Corporate Dominatrix?

Are You Guilty?

Leadership is a tricky subject.  Being a leader is often even more challenging.  Throughout history, leaders of lasting, continually successful efforts are great facilitators of ideas. However, when “senior leaders” take credit where NONE is due, the chances of them maintaining a lasting, genuine, productive relationship with their work groups becomes increasingly slim.

All to often, weak “leaders” will ask a question under the auspices of being a real question, only to interrupt the first participant in the room who speaks up as if the question was intended to be a rhetorical one with “an obvious answer” that only they could have foreseen.

At that point, the “facilitator” has poisoned the opportunity to build a sense of safety and belonging, in exchange for a short-term, self-ego-stroking, momentary act of domineering that rarely results an any resemblance of a “team”.

What kind of leader do you want to be: a facilitator or just a corporate dominatrix?  The choice is defined by your actions.
