S P A C E | 'Bottlenecks'
Read an interview by Dipika Kohli with Ben Brearely who is a consultant for managers and aims to help them do their work better.
'Thoughtful leaders think hard about how other people are feeling and the impact that their leadership has on those around them,' Brearely writes, on his website*. 'In that frame of mind, you start to make better decisions that play to the strengths of your team and get better results.'
His podcast 'Thoughtful Leadership' had an episode about 'bottlenecks' at work. Kohli was curious and emailed to ask about it. Putting on her old journalist hat, she then asked questions like: Who are bottlenecks? What do they do? How does that get in the way of smooth workflows? Why do they do it? How can one watch for red flags, when it comes to people like this?
Why are we sharing about managerial styles in this issue of S P A C E? It's where the conversations are. We are meeting people. We are connecting. We are talking to CEOs, and we are hearing what people are saying they love and don't love about work. In an era where more leaders are paying attention to the wellbeing of their employees (at least, it's trendy to say that), S P A C E is asking people who are experts for advice on how to actually do this. Hat tip, BB.
