And being tight with the rank-and-file can lead to valuable intel about what’s really going on with the company.But new research suggests “prestige-oriented” leaders — that is, those who rely on the esteem of colleagues rather than the fear inspired by traditional “dominance” types — can struggle with one key aspect of the job: decisions that are good for the organization but unpopular with underlings. “That desire to be respected and admired can be an … [Read more...] about As leadership styles lean kinder, how do bosses make unpopular decisions?
