On the Brink with Andi Simon

Hear how to turn a jerk boss into someone you want to follow! Have you ever had an amazing boss or manager who was a leader in many ways yet always seemed to be a “jerk”? If so, you might want to read “Managing Brilliant Jerks: How Organizations and Coaches Can Transform Difficult Leaders into Powerful Visionaries” by Dr. Katrina Burrus, today's podcast guest. A wonderful speaker, author and executive coach, Katrina and I were kindred spirits as we discussed the challenges we have all experienced when having to work for an individual who is terrific in so many ways but fails terribly when leading others. The big question is always, “Can you take that jerk and turn him/her into a star?” Yes! Learn how. Watch and listen to our conversation here Often people do not know how they impact others, and why that impact matters What Katrina has learned coaching executives, high-potential emerging leaders and even middle managers is that people can only lead if others will follow them. Their styles can be engaging or irritating, embracing or terrifying, but without followers, they accomplish little. So how do we help make the difficult leader into one who everyone wants to follow? In our podcast, Katrina clarifies for you the complex processes at work in the mind of an abrasive leader—and empowers you to forge a productive and cooperative relationship with the jerks you encounter in your own professional life.
