But is he the one to deliver this message? His bias over shadows his authenticity...

1st, we don't know the constraints of the situation in the story he tells. 2nd, if the shape of a table is the excuse one uses to say leadership is effective or ineffective is quite ridiculous. 3rd, just because someone has a prominent seat at a table does not confer dominance as an alpha male. One can only claim this title in the midst of the action. 4th, alpha's can be female. 5th, the behavior described during the intro is not correct. Those actions if used in a situation of life and death would most certainly yield a negative outcome.

Both figuratively and literally diversity in leadership results in the most success. Earth itself is biodiverse and therefore more capable of beautifully incredible and diverse existence, let us take notes!

Yes. Anyone can be a leader. However, it takes skill to be an effective leader.

Unfortunately all of these adaptable, honest, authentic people get pushed aside by egotistical bullies whom then become our leaders!!! We need to start a whole new egalitarian social philosophy style of governing that will run parallel and then watch as the old system crumbles. This is already happening.
Susana Nieva (13 days ago)
The reason why I think the egoistic and bullies become leaders is because nobody speaks up... every body knows who they are but hardly ever speaks up.

Exactly! Many people think domineering people should have power over others. When they do this, they end up getting played.

From my perspectives and view, Relationship is important for a leader to function well in a diverse culture,ways of thinking and diverse backgrounds of education.

Everyone has a different leadership style, it's what is right for you.

Being an “alpha” isn’t about being the strongest power holder or being domineering – it is about being the best at what the team values. You are dominant because you are the best You are dominant because you create most value You are dominant because people follow you  - because it is in their best interest to do so If you are not an alpha you are not a leader
Brian Fuller (1 year ago)
Zed, you said it right. He only cared about his alpha male tag line and pidgeon holing all current leaders into a one dimensional stereotype. Respect is good. Getting buy in from the team is good. So is decisive action and vision. Men and woman of all walks of life are able to be alphas who lead in the right way.
Talk to Goshiack (2 years ago)
I think the difference as always lies in motivation... You can be either: domineering or being the best at what the team values, or both or even something totally different. depending on the principles behind your actions. However naturally for a while you can still exhibit the same attitudes to someone with different motivation, and convincing everyone around that they are equal, but eventually results reflects our motives and drives. And I am sure that the critical audience as the working environment generally is, will asses your motivation correctly, whichever it may be and therefore leadership style you represent will reflect on the attitudes and behavior of your team.
