Therefore, as a team member (or 'follower') I have some insight into which traits and behaviours engage or disengage me and my fellow employees from our leaders. Of course these'll be different for everyone, but – needless to say – all of mine involve communication. Here are my personal Top 3 for each category:
A few months ago I wrote a blog entitled 5 Examples of Great Leadership Communication in Film & TV, in which I listed a few of my favourite leaders from movies and television.
My choices happened to be exclusively male, so to redress the situation I promised in that blog to write a future post picking a few personal favourites from the wealth of great female leaders out there on the big and small screens.
So, without further ado:
How many busy leaders and managers find the time to frequent their local multiplexes, or spend the weekend working their way through an 18-hour box-set of The Wire?
Perhaps more than you might think. A survey by Inc. magazine resulted in a dramatic (no pun intended) response, with two-thirds of the leaders surveyed responding in passionate support of their particular favourites, from Citizen Kane to Rocky.
