People tolerate superaggressive leaders if their visions are exceptionally strong, but it’s a dicey proposition.
Experience shows that bullies, even when considered “visionaries,” tend to go too far.
“Americans have become disenchanted with power,” says Stanford business professor Roderick Kramer. “Almost daily, they watch as leaders—in government, in business—fail to exercise appropriate restraint.”
The result? Tolerance for bullying leaders may be ebbing. Already, 80% of Americans say we have a crisis.
Lesson: If you’ve ever gotten even a whiff that your style is too forward, take that hint as a bugle blast. The last thing you need is to become a target—or worse, a laughingstock.
