Tish was interviewed by Dave Molenda, host of The Positive Polarity Podcast.
In this episode, Tish breaks down what she calls “HeadTrash”. Based on the principles in her book, Tish teaches how to be a more effective leader through optimized decision-making.
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.
