In the September issue of Leadership Guide Magazine we focus on a specific issue that every leader is confronted with from time to time: how to handle negativism in an organization? While we all work hard to stay positive and engender the same in our teams, we know that realistically even one negative person can undermine years of hard work in a short amount of time. Fortunately, specific and directed strategies can neutralize their effects.
In “Practical Advice for Leading Negative People,” we provide five specific strategies for dealing with what is known as “energy vampires.” We provide practical ideas from leaders in various sectors who have “been there, done that.”
The second article is an interview with Jon Gordon , the noted leadership speaker, author, and consultant. In the article he proposes the idea of a real negativity buster: “the no complaining rule.” Gordon also discusses a wide range of other views on practical, ethical leadership in the ongoing challenges faced in business.
The third article is entitled, “Servant Leadership Revisited." It provides 10 benchmarks you can use to evaluate your leadership effectiveness or that of others on your team.
