Putting Words, Images and Ideas to Work
“Russell Ewing, a British journalist, said: A boss creates fear; a leader, confidence. A boss fixes blame; a leader corrects mistakes. A boss knows all; a leader asks questions. A boss makes work drudgery; a leader makes it interesting. A boss is interested in himself or herself; a leader is interested in the group.”
The above quote is excepted from a terrific article I read this morning, reposted from the NY Times Business section, originally posted on August 11, 2012. The article was part of an interview with Bill Flemming, president of Skanska USA Building Inc., conducted and condensed by Adam Bryant.
In it, Flemming explains his leadership style, how he runs meetings, and views on leadership. It’s chock full of great ideas. The Skanska site, incidentally, is also a very nice example of a website, well done.
