Humans are hardwired to learn by imitation and are creatures of habit. Leadership coach Elizabeth Lyle argues that these two powerful human tendencies will set the next generation of leaders up for failure. Using a single anecdote, she explains how senior and middle managers can work together to annihilate bad management habits and prepare their organization to succeed in the business environment of the future. Leadership coaches, as well as current and aspiring senior managers, will benefit from Lyle’s practical insights.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why middle managers are absorbing their senior managers’ bad habits,
- Why such habits are undesirable in the organizations of the future and
- Why middle managers are responsible for initiating leadership transformation.
