The demand to produce will never stop. Our organization survives because we produce. Obviously, it will stay that way.But we have identify the thin line between enough and too much.
For decades, we’ve been taught that leadership is about one single person on top. And in order for me to be there, we will have to beat every person in the way whatever it takes. And because that’s what we knew, we competed and fought my way to the top. Sometimes, we would win. Many times, we would lose. Either way, the result didn’t make us happy. After all, knowing that we have beaten someone is as equally as heart-breaking as having beaten by someone.
Nobody wins in competition. However, the leadership concept that we have know for a long time encourages people to compete in different levels, at different times, in different styles. If you want to be a leader, you’ve got to be on top, in front, and in-charge. It goes on and on. And not only that. The same competitor’s mindset cascades down to the very last man in the organization. It wears down everyone.
