An interesting piece on being a boring leader. I’d admit that as an introvert I do like a tendency toward low drama in a work setting. That having been said, I also love being in a work environment where this is a lot of laughter, even at the silly stuff.
A quote from what the author found in his anecdotal assessment of what makes a good leader:
“To my surprise, the best of [the best leaders] tended to be quiet listeners who let other people make most of the decisions. They weren’t particularly charismatic. Or funny. They weren’t the toughest guys in the pack. They didn’t have a Clintonian need to be liked, or a Patton-like intensity. They were, on the whole, a little boring.”
