EEC 139: Transforming Brilliant Jerks
Toxic workplaces sometimes start at the top. Difficult, abrasive leaders can create a culture of tension, fear, and abusive behavior at every organizational level.
Those types of leaders may produce results, but their actions also lead to dysfunction and employee turnover. I call these profiles Brilliant Jerks. They are brilliant in what they do but difficult, if not impossible, to work with.
Dr. Katrina Burrus, Master Certified Coach since (2002) from the International Coach Federation has a discussion with another Seasoned Coach, how Dr. Katrina coaches these Brilliant Jerks.
Listen to the discussion between Kim Ades, a seasoned coach, interviewing Dr. Katrina Burrus, MCC.
