The post-Gates era

Say Cheek
Leadership Therapy
Anna Rowley
( )

Subordinates relentlessly copy bosses’ mannerisms

Visualise this: The top executives of Microsoft Corp. are in a meeting and Bill Gates is talking. “As he grows intense he starts rocking and bobbing back and forth in his chair, the rocking and bobbing speeding up as he continues. Seated around him, several of his lieutenants soon are rocking and bobbing. Gates periodically pushes his glasses up on his nose; his associates push their glasses up.”
Amusing stuff, but this is a snatch from Harvard Business Review that Anna Rowley cites in ‘Leadership Therapy’ .
