The Chameleon was the model employee. Everything his owner did, he would follow. However, his boss would often be infuriated at everything that the Chameleon did and yell and berate him. One day the Chameleon finally said after angering his boss, “I’m just following your lead and doing what you do.”
Lesson: This lesson is from the Rescue a CEO post “How NOT to Motivate Your Employees.” For leaders and managers one of the most important lessons is that employees follow their leadership. If leadership is lazy, disorganized or doesn’t set good examples then employees and staff will follow that lead. Set the example you wish your employees to follow.
