It often involves fear and intimidation. How can fearful and angry serving staff …

Aspiring leaders therefore need to be true to themselves; not slavishly following other’s ideas. Role models can be powerful and it doesn’t hurt to model excellence when found; executive coaching is based on this premise. Real leaders are prepared to reveal their weakness, because they know they are not super-human. Obviously this doesn’t mean technical weaknesses or functional failings; this would fatally flaw their performance. Instead, what is meant is that leaders should reveal their personality quirks – maybe they are bad tempered in the morning, are somewhat shy with new people or a little disorganized. …
