Leadership Strategies that Stink
While some leadership principles are evergreen, others become obsolete and require evolution for effectiveness over the years. The following reviews some leadership strategies that you may be using – and have been for years – that may no longer work:
Ruling with Rules
Rules are made to be broken. But really – if you have strict rules for your employees or team members and do not offer any flexibility within those rules, you are not leading nearly as effectively as you could be. Rules stifle creativity and in the worst of cases can create resentment.
You Reward and Punish as You See Fit
The idea that you should motivate your employees with rewards and remove incentives when they fail to do their job is outdated and in a way, kind of offensive. Put yourself on an even playing field with your employees rather than judging them from above. Remember, you job is to lead and organize, not criticize and control.
Thinking That You Are Better
There is an idea in many traditional business settings that leadership works like a hierarchy and therefore managers are better than everyone else. Think what you will but you wouldn’t be where you are without your brilliant team. Bring yourself back down to earth and remember that being in a higher management position does not make you a higher caliber of human.

- Yep paradise was epic. I swam, scuba dove a wreck, shared a new meditation, chatted with Richard Branson about the soul, sang … badly, hung out with giant tortoises every morning, got chased by a fierce lizard, played tennis several times, took kite surfing lessons, shook loose cobwebs, finished a book, shared loads of amazing connections, swam some more, got lost in the highest areas of the island in torrential rain, hung out at Rincon surfside, shared my sexy abs that rock routine, danced and rested on the last few days. Beyond grateful for all that is and all that was! Love to all😘😎 What have you been up to?
- From the mud brilliance can rise. The mud is where many remain stuck. The mud is where many wallow until they have to crawl just far enough out until they repeat. BUT the mud is where the real entrepreneurs go and create from. They make the mud their playground and the treasures rise up like the lotus. RISE up with me.
