From Peter Block: This culture holds firmly to the belief that our institutions and our citizens are driven and shaped by those who lead them. When we look at a workplace, we explain its culture by looking at the management style and vision of its leaders. We ignore the possibility that leaders are created, manufactured and molded by their followers. Employees hold important cards that determine what the organization will become. Leaders have their place and we would each rather have a great leader than a small one, but we consistently undervalue the extent to which the leadership we get is exactly the leadership we have created. Joel Henning is an author, consultant and friend of mine. I recently participated in a simulation he designed in which teams are asked to role-play three different styles of leadership.
