What is Shadow Of The Leader?
John Spacey, updated on October 27, 2016
Shadow of the leader is when management and organizational culture reflect the style of a leader. Managers tend to look upwards for cues as to expectations, norms, habits, strategies and techniques. For example, a leader who is obsessed with cutting costs may lead to a culture of efficiency whereby waste and excesses are eliminated. If the CEO of a firm takes economy class flights it is impossible to think that a junior engineer is going to take business. Alternatively, a leader who spends on expensive strategies only to lose interest and move on to something else may be encouraging the same across an organization. Shadow of the leader also applies to basics such as norms of office politics, embracing change, risk taking, experimentation, quality, design thinking, learning from failure and motivation.
