Ep 104: Leading Up
Although leadership is usually discussed in theory as one of the main elements that drive team building, reality still paints it as part of a rigid hierarchal model. Thus, most people refuse to start leading up since it results in a negative connotation rooted in overpowering the people above them. Adam Quiney aims to break this stigma by discussing how one should act when leaders go against their beliefs or expectations. He discusses three challenging scenarios a lot of people usually experience with leadership, as well as how to address each one where growth and understanding on both sides can bloom. He also explains the right way to lead downwards, underlining one important fact about managing a team: inspiration over control.
