Tish was interviewed by Jeff Nischwitz and Craig Mathews, hosts of the Leadership Junkies podcast.
She discussed leadership, team chemistry, emotional intelligence, and the HeadTrash that can get in the way of effectiveness.
The belief that keeping a tight rein on every aspect of the business will ensure its long-term success. This belief is a fallacy because as the business grows, it is impossible for one leader to do it all- it’s impractical, it’s unsustainable, and it’s certainly no way to scale your business for growth.
Control triggers other types of Headtrash (insecurity, paranoia, fear) in a leader’s colleagues. With limited opportunity to express their talents, employees may start to doubt themselves. “Why doesn’t my boss think I can handle this? There must be something I’m not doing right.”
Passive aggressiveness and micro-management are two of the very common forms of the HeadTrash of Control.
