Like many leaders we meet and work with worldwide, Eduardo was previously an individual contributor. He is now a manager at the prosthetics company you were introduced to in Module One.

Below are comments from his first set of feedback received after his promotion to manager.

“Eduardo is extremely intelligent and typically gets to the solution before everyone else. This is often his downfall as he moves quickly to implementing a solution when in fact the organization is two steps behind him. This creates a disconnect with the team. In his role as president, he should be ‘teaching people how to fish.’ Unfortunately, Eduardo gets frustrated with the lack of responsiveness from the organization and, as a result, hands over the ‘fish.’ This can create insecurity and frustration, with people feeling they cannot live up to his expectations.”

“Eduardo does not leverage his team to create the desired vision. Because he is intelligent and gets to answers faster than most, he loses patience and decides to do all the work himself. By doing so, he misses out on the input of others and fails to garner support for the vision. When he becomes quickly entrenched in his position, he often ignores valid input and alternative points of view.”

“Eduardo thinks he knows best and hence does not listen to others. Nor does he inspire confidence in his team. As a result, his ‘professional arrogance’ creates more of a dictatorial leadership style, which in turn produces adversarial relationships internally (Eduardo versus everyone). Over time, this outcome will also spread to external partners. In the end, we will continue to lose talent, which will eventually impact business performance.”
