No one likes sycophants, yet every workplace has its share of them. Why? Because leaders unwittingly send out subtle signals that encourage subordinates to mute their criticisms and exaggerate their praise of the higher-ups—precisely the kind of behavior that can undermine an organization. Here’s how to make sure you’re not tacitly urging on the derriere-kissers in your workplace.
Marshall Goldsmith is a leadership development trainer whose emphasis is on helping executives and their teams achieve positive change in behavior. He is the author of What Got You Here Won’t Get You There (Hyperion, 2007).
