"There is a bold, compelling line between leadership and 'fierce' leadership. Wherever you are in the world, I hope you'll join the thousands of leaders who are crossing the line. Fierce Leadership [feers lee-der-ship] noun 1. A fast-acting anti-venom to the business-as-usual mode of high task/low relationship, self-serving agendas, directing and telling, anonymous feedback, holding people accountable, excessive use of jargon and mandating initiatives that cause people to weep on too many fine days. 2. The act of acquiring your most valuable currency—emotional capital. 3. Also signals the acquisition of squid eye (more on this later) and the demise of truth-telling squeamishness and ethical squishiness."
