He’ll Flip A Lid!
We all have been guilty of, worked with, for, or witnessed someone in a leadership role who would “flip a lid” at the drop of a hat. I believe “lid flipping management” runs in my family. Legend has it that my grandfather literally kicked his employee and son (my uncle) by the seat of his pants out the front door of his office into the street. The lid flipper believes getting angry is the only way to ‘drive’ motivation, but sustained motivation is not achievable by ‘drive’ alone. Long-term, that’s as difficult as pushing a string. Sustaining motivation is through teamwork, not ‘leader vs. others’ fueled by anger. The lid flipper is lazy, secretly hoping those around him will learn to ‘fix’ issues without disturbing him.
