ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the demerits of excess good qualities. It states that one way that leaders don't perform well is by going to counterproductive extremes. By detecting excess, a 360 tool not only picks up on single behaviors or dimensions of performance, it also picks up a pervasive problem in leaders. These types of leaders are too task-oriented and not people-oriented enough, or conversely too people oriented and not task-oriented enough. They are too focused on the short term and not enough on the long term or the converse.
