Adam Grant tweeted about the difference between weak, strong, and great leaders.

« Weak leaders blame the messenger. They see problems as threats to their ego.

Strong leaders thank the messenger. They see problems as threats to their mission.

Great leaders promote the messenger. They see recognizing and raising problems as acts of vision and courage. »

Adam Grant is a professor at Wharton and an organizational psychologist.

He is the author of:
