Time to lead by teambuilding
Q: This week's Washington Post investigative series on the government's burgeoning intelligence network prompts the question: Can an organization get so big and so complex that it just can't be managed effectively? Or is "too-big-to-manage" just a cop-out for flawed structure and lack of leadership?
An organization's size and related complexities are challenges, but hardly that big a barrier to effective management. A leader that takes on complex challenges inherent to large organizations needs to transition from being an individual leader with comprehensive knowledge and mastery to one who develops a strong team of individuals to whom significant responsibility and accountability are vested.
