A tendency among some leaders is to begin to make things all about them. Because we are so personally invested in and attached to what we do, it’s somewhat inevitable. Everything begins to revolve around around their personality, their preferences, their agenda, their problems, their strengths, etc. I’ve seen this in organizations both big and small. While it is inevitable that the personality of the leader will influence the whole group, that doesn’t mean that everything about the group should be held captive by the leader’s characteristics.
