Despite talk about flattening hierarchies, leaders still call the shots.
“For successful leaders, the way you manage is much more Machiavellian than is conventionally perceived today,” says Noel Tichy, University of Michigan professor and change agent at General Electric.
“There’s a whole set of fun rules for the successful leaders,” Tichy explains. “There’s also something called the ‘garbage can theory’ of decision-making. The skillful Machiavellian leader creates a garbage can and everyone throws their stuff into it, but [the leader makes] the real decisions.”
