Leadership Tangle
  • CEO’s who are not communicating effectively with their Board
  • Teams that are stuck in unproductive conflict
  • Leaders who are tangled in self-doubt
  • Snarling, hard-charging leaders who shut down ideas
  • Conflict-averse executives who avoid the tough issues, and tend towards passive aggressive communication patterns
  • Micromanagers who leave their teams feeling disempowered
  • Finger-pointing and blaming that creates an "us versus them" culture
  • Key leaders who are not collaborating with major stakeholders
  • Snarled thinking that gets in the way of smart decisions
  • “VUCA in the headlights” moments resulting in fear and playing not to lose (VUCA - Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) 
  • Emotionally-charged, political messes that tangle forward progress
