What’s Your Boss Experience?

After reading the article below from Harvard Business Review, I thought about the Executives I have had the privilege of guiding for the past 25 years. I am interested in their own Boss experience and how they are perceived as bosses.  I wondered about my team’s assessment of me as a boss.

We are guides in the most complex systems which include Business – Family – and often Shared Ownership.  This creates abundant opportunities for growth and development.  This comes through deep trust, conflict, commitment and accountability to a higher goal.  This article talks about how understanding the collective goals of the organization energizes team members.

As a guide in family business transitions through leadership development, I have learned that most of the next generation leaders need to understand the bigger goal for why they exist and why they are taking on the responsibility of owning the family business and leading people into the future.

We have a lot to do in uncovering the unique stories and personalities of each leader in order to guide them as team leaders and executives.
