Why Excel Sheet Style Of Leadership Is An Oxymoron

Why Excel Sheet Style Of Leadership Is An Oxymoron

If, as a leader, you take all your decisions based on Excel sheets devoid of emotional labour, you are a victim of Excel sheet leadership.

Here is the deal about excel sheet leadership.

It’s an oxymoron. It doesn’t exist.

The hard part is going through each cell on that sheet. The hard part is listening and responding to all exceptions.  The hard part is looking at the world from someone else’s perspective.

Excel sheet leaders die young. And they die as managers. The rest become leaders.
