In September 2022, I gave an interview to the London based Academy of Executive Coaching (AoEC) about their systemic team coaching diploma training that I completed in 2021 as well as about my experiences as an executive and team coach. I found it a valuable time to reflect on the past 15 years of my career, and I’m happy to share it in this blog post.
“In my view, a good leader can be defined in two ways. He’s capable of self-reflection – and not only capable but also actively doing it -, and people are ready to follow him. They set out to follow him, but he doesn’t need to look back to see if they are behind him. Toxic leaders, however, do not look back. They believe they are good leaders, and people are willing to follow them, but they actually do it out of fear of them.”
