Marshall Goldsmith Video: How to Avoid Favorites

We’ve all seen it. A boss has his or her favorites. It’s de-moralizing. You’re frustrated because it feels like Fort Knox trying to get his attention to discuss an important business problem or HR solution. Others don’t even want to bother; they just hide collecting a paycheck.

The cost of this leadership behavior to an organization is great because it severely restricts the flow of critical information for good decision-making.

Executive coach and best-selling author Marshall Goldsmith has written extensively about this issue and has a humorous take on this very human failing in this video. He also has a solution to help bosses, really any of us, from creating blind spots by playing favorites.

This video is part of the Marshall Goldsmith Effective Leadership Skills DVD
