the leadership issue

“People with that deficient concept of leadership tend to put distance between themselves and their group. They worry a lot about ‘image.’ Most of them are big on intimidation tactics. So they are stingy with praise and generous with criticism. In their own words, they like to ‘keep people guessing’ about what comes next. There tends to be a lot of turnover in businesses run that way, lots of divorce in families run that way, and lots of division in churches run that way.”
