#6 - What should a new leader do to establish his/her style and make an impact - without rocking the boat?

We're back this Monday after Daylight Savings with a new response from JBbiz author Sylvia Lafair. For those who didn't know, this March author series is based on the recent news that Time Inc. CEO Jack Griffin left his post at the company after only 6 months in the job. You can read the full article in BusinessWeek here. We'll have plenty more author insights to share every day this week and hope you'll chime in, in the blog comments or on Twitter and Facebook.

Sylvia Lafair:

"Leadership without boat-rocking begins with learning the art and craft of truth telling without blame, judgment, or attack. This is a high discipline not taught well in our culture. Most important is remembering that telling the truth is not spilling your guts. It requires a deep understanding of how systems are connected, sprinkled with a large amount of tact and compassion."


Sylvia Lafair is the author of “Don’t Bring it to Work: Breaking the Family Patterns that Limit Success” and is an expert on leadership, workplace behaviour, and relationships. Having begun her career as a family therapist, she went on to serve as an executive coach to senior executives and leadership teams. Lafair is Co-Founder and President of Creative Energy Options (CEO), a consulting firm with retreat centres in Pennsylvania and New Mexico, USA.
