The Connected Leadership Podcast: Command and Control with Myles Downey

Listen on

Episode notes

Is 'command and control' management on the way out? Andy Lopata discusses with Myles Downey, business coach for leaders and author of 'The Enabling Manager'. In the week PM Boris Johnson had to give in to pressure to resign, his leadership style is questioned. Is there a need for more vulnerable and inclusive leadership? Millennials and GenZ generations do not respond to command and control, so as leaders they could be changing the culture. The question Andy and Myles ask is, what replaces command and control? Myles believes that trust based relationships in business are important, align and enable is the future. If everyone understands what the primary business objective is, then leaders can lead, manage and coach to achieve goals.
