If, as a leader, you take all your decisions based on excel sheets, devoid of emotional labor, 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
Since nothing is hard, if you want to achieve something.
Probably, these managers are lazy or disinterested or disoriented or undecided about their goal.
The rest have thought more and planned well and they always stay hungry for more!
