Ever found yourself mulling over the complexities of dysfunctional leadership and its impact on your work environment? Have you ever wished for a chance to explore its depths, guided by seasoned behavioural change and leadership consultants? If so, we have a treat for you! We – Anne and Heather – were invited by Darine BenAmara to do just that in an outstanding episode of the STANDOUT From the Crowd Podcast! 

Our engaging narrative is more than just an exploration of our professional experiences; it’s a fascinating tale of a mother-daughter team. Interested in how our paths merged? We promise you; our personal narrative is nothing short of captivating. Fuelled by a shared zeal for nurturing potential, we formed an exceptional alliance, weaving together our individual strengths in psychotherapy, personality type, leadership development, and performance and organizational systems. This blend not only enriched our partnership but also led us on a path full of insightful leadership lessons and personal growth wisdom. 

If you are curious about what causes dysfunctional leadership and how can fear, ego, and lack of self-awareness culminate in low productivity, entitled employees and other current issues, this show is for you. More importantly, you’ll get some tips on how you can avoid falling into dysfunctional behaviors. This STANDOUT From the Crowd episode teases insights from our book, “So You Think You Can Lead?“, where we delve into these aspects, revealing the necessity of developing the ‘people’ side of leadership roles. 

For those of you who are feeling disempowered in your organization or are you a leader grappling with constant complaints within your team, we provide a fresh perspective on these red flags of dysfunction and suggest proactive ways to address them. Together with Darine, we also discuss the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on leadership and underline the critical balance between the ‘human being’ and ‘human doing’ aspects of leadership. 

Eager to delve in? Hope onto your favorite platform for this riveting episode on YouTube, Spotify or Apple Podcasts. And, if our insights into dysfunction resonate with you, we’d be thrilled if you left us a five-star review! We promise a meaningful dialogue that is not just engaging, but also enlightening and thought-provoking.  Make the choice to step out of your comfort zone, just tolerating the dysfunction around you.
