The Best Executives

“Leaders don’t create followers; they create more leaders.”

Tom Peters

The best executives hire and develop great talent, empower them with clear objectives, ample authority and leave them alone to figure out the tactics to meet their objectives. They offer timely and constructive feedback, encourage creativity and innovation, provide opportunities to grow while holding them absolutely accountable for behavior and results. Weak executives create order taker/followers because they use fear, threats and political manipulation to control, constantly second guess and meddle in the business. Ineffective executives constrict leverage and performance because they need to control power and authority. Great executives gain leverage by distributing power and authority to their capable lieutenants.
