Have you ever wondered why organizations tolerate dysfunctional leaders?  The answer is dysfunction is so prevalent it’s often not even recognized as problematic.
According to a recent study by CEB (a global corporate research firm) CEO’s say that only 5% of their employees have the combination of skills and capabilities to deliver desired results in 2013.
We all know the definition of insanity – doing the same things over and over, but expecting different results.  Can organizations continue to do the same things and expect different results?  Can we expect mediocre managers to develop future leaders?  Leaders are managers, but managers are obviously not leaders.
Leaders give consistently, receive occasionally; the manager gives occasionally and takes consistently.
Leaders answer the questions that are not asked; the manager waits for the question to be asked.

Leaders find the balance between gentle and strong; the manager tends to focus on the strong. Leaders take issues head on and address the tough stuff; managers tend to skirt the real issues.
Leaders leverage the skills and attitudes that individuals bring to the job; managers see employees as resources. Only 5% of employees have the combination of skills and capabilities to deliver desired results in 2013. Let’s not continue making things harder than they need to be.  Let’s get back to the basics and feel a sense of success once again.
