CEO COURAGE: REMOVING THE TOXIC TEAM MEMBER

Guest Post

by Waldemar Kohl


My good friend and Table Group colleague Waldemar Kohl just posted this excellent Thoughts from the Field (August, 2022) on CEO Courage. It’s excellent.

Unfortunately, the dynamic of a toxic leader is not uncommon on executive teams – especially as the team focuses on getting more cohesive, trusting and aligned.  Having the courage to directly address such an issue is one of the responsibilities of the CEO.  One CEO I worked with recently made this statement, “As I reflected on this leader, I become more afraid of the bad things that would result if he stayed than the things that would happen if he left.”
