BL31: Don’t Play Daddy Ball

dave@theevansgp.com Leadership, Podcasts 0 Comments

Nothing kills a team faster than playing DADDY BALL leaders must not succumb to the pressure of having people placed in their organizations.  Promotions must be earned and teammates must be placed in positions by capability.   When leaders start playing DADDY BALL and place individuals in positions that they are not qualified for the team will revolt.

I don’t know how many times i have seen it in sports.  A coach has a kid that stinks, but places him is the most prominent position because his daddy wants him there.  The team suffers, the coach loses credibility and the team fails.

The same thing happens in organizations.  Be careful and don’t fall for DADDY BALL LEADERSHIP.

 

BE BOLD
