Leadership Excellence Essentials;Dec2010, Vol. 27 Issue 12, p5
The author discusses how leaders improperly manage anger through excessive political correctness. He cites former Massachusetts governor Michael S. Dukakis as an example of a person who is unable to express appropriate anger. He explains some of the reasons why many chief executive officers (CEOs) choose to be politically correct even when the situation requires them to give negative feedback. He recommends leaders to condemn unfavorable behaviors and not the person.
