THE CEO WHO SPEAKS LOUDLY


EXTREME ENGAGEMENT!
 
Client

2nd generation business owner

Actions

He goes directly to individuals to point out "what is wrong" with what they are doing

Message sent to staff

They feel he does not trust their abilities

Opening comment when first engaged:

"I don't think any of my managers add value"

No surprise!
 

Two weeks later:

"I have never had anyone teach me how to manage!"

Process

Transition to holding managers accountable and stepping away to make that happen.  His managers need to build greater trust with the boss that they are competent leaders.
