Moment #8 // Permissive Leaders Make People Unproductive AND Unhappy

I've seen the devastating effects of laissez-faire leaders. They seem to think that if you keep people happy, they’ll naturally give you their best work.

Make no mistake, there's nothing soft about a constructive culture. It only exists when a leader demands the best from every individual, and is prepared to stretch them to achieve things they never thought they could.
