Updated Mar 08, 2019

Leadership requires awareness, open communication and the ability to empower others.

In this case study, David is unaware of how disempowering his behavior has become. Anne gives David specific feedback and he improves.

This is broken down into three informative sections:

Part 1: The Sins David doesn't discuss and agree on the way they will work together, doesn't listen and continually interrupts, fails to acknowledge good work, invades personal space, is inflexible about the way things are done, and is oblivious to Anne's body language and the impact of his own behavior.

Part 2: Feedback Anne gives David specific feedback about his behavior and how it makes it hard for her to work effectively. David acknowledges the feedback and accepts the need to change.

Part 3: Empowerment David discusses career goals with Anne and brings out her motivation.
