I definitely made my share of bad hires in the early days as a business owner: The salesperson who never made a sale. The admin who stole our software for her sideline business. The marketing rep who continually fell asleep at her desk and did her personal errands while out of the office on “company business.”

Rarely does a day go by that we aren’t bombarded with media accounts of high profile, toxic leaders.  From bully behaviors including sexual harassment offenses that have harmed countless individuals all the way to the demise of once “high flying” corporations, the ripple effect of bad bosses seems to be at an all-time high.

Traditionally, an effective leader was seen as someone equipped with a variety of skills essential for them to grow a business. This notion has remained a part of our belief for a long time, and because of this notion, we expect leaders to be experts at everything. However, this expectation brings massive pressure and is now seen as ineffective by many. While becoming a leader entails work that grows a business, it should not include the leader being responsible for every task.

It has been two years since I wrote my book Ingaging Leadership: 23 Steps to Elevate Your Business. Since then, a number of business leaders have told me they have been applying Ingaged Leadership, and achieving success and good results.

It is a great compliment for me to hear that my ideas are helping people become better leaders. Yet for me, the real excitement comes from knowing that my philosophy is helping organizations perform better. I am a great believer in the tonic of success, because when people work for successful organizations, they have much better lives. If I have played even a small role in making that happen, I am proud.

Only 1-in-12 companies manage to rise from the middle of the pack to the top. Here’s how to become one of them

Several times a year, top management teams enter the strategy room with lofty goals and the best of intentions: They hope to learn from each other how different parts of their business are faring, and to mount a decisive, coordinated response to changing market conditions.
