Being the boss has never been harder. Recent events in the corporate world, Hollywood and politics have focused negative attention on the kind of tough, demanding leaders who used to be valued for getting things done, labeling many as bullies and accusing them of fostering a “hostile workplace environment.” They are demeaned and called names, as society demands that they change their ways. But what if the very thing that makes them so abrasive is also their superpower?
As a Master Corporate Executive Coach, Jordan Goldrich works with senior executives who are committed to success, who lead their teams, and who accomplish the mission. Sometimes, they are experienced as abrasive and occasionally perceived as bullying. He helps them drive results without damaging relationships. As COO, Jordan helped build a healthcare company from 4 employees to 65 and a sale to a large insurance company. He has over 35 years’ experience working successfully with Fortune 500 and closely held companies. He is also an executive coach with the Center for Creative Leadership.
During this interview, Jordan and I discuss the following topics:
- His background and story
- The inspiration behind his book
- What a workplace warrior is
- Four types of workplace leaders
- How to recognize whether you are a workplace warrior or a bully
- How to adjust your communication style based on an organization’s culture
- What to do if you feel like your supervisor is abrasive or a bully
