Winning Strategy

Our winning strategy for leadership comes from M.T. in Philadelphia, Pa.:

"I lead by looking for opportunities to develop new leaders. Recently I had a member of my team who was failing. He upset people and was very disruptive to the rest of the team. I came up with a simple strategy, I made him the chair of an important committee. He did a great job. One of the things I've learned is that as much of the disruptive behavior at work comes from people who are being under utilized as it does from people who are being over utilized."
