The three dumbest things:

The three dumbest things leaders do when things are going well:

  1. Divert resources from growing areas and high opportunities. Propping up poor performing programs and solving problems doesn’t produce stunning success.
  2. Pollute successful teams with poor performers, foot draggers, and complainers. Put chronic complainers on the same team.
  3. Listen to complaints from low or slow growth departments. Ask complainers what they want to do to solve their concerns. Leaders who focus on solving complaints end up controlled by complainers.

People who feel threatened by the success of others want to stop it. Listening to them makes you a success-killer.
