The harsh reality for people who dislike demanding bosses

Disneyland book
Walt Disney had his moments like every leader does. He wasn’t always happy with the way things were going.


There’s a harsh reality for people who dislike demanding bosses. The demanding boss doesn’t like being demanding. If accountability is clear, then results should follow. When results don’t follow the boss has to do something to ensure the results happen.

That plan b that the boss has to go to is often perceived as demanding.

Now imagine if you delivered exactly what you and the boss agreed on.

There’d be praise instead of pressure.

Tell me again who’s fault that is.
