Don't like your Boss' Leadership Style? Try Situational Followership
piyush, Manager, Tanzania, Member
If you feel frustrated or uninspired by your leader, you're in good company. Many people are unhappy with the leadership styles of those above them.
Rather than trying to oust or change your leader, it may be time to look inward. Accept what you can't change your leader's style. Focus on what YOU can control how you follow.
If you have a manager who likes to have his hand in everything, don't resist the micro-managing. Instead, invite him to get involved. He's likely to include himself anyway, and bringing him in increases the likelihood he will support your work.
If your leader is more hands off and fails to motivate you, find inspiration from the work itself or from others in the organization.
Then, reflect back to your leader what you find most inspiring. You may be able to show him what you need by getting it elsewhere first.
