Duck and Cover

I was having breakfast with a friend recently and she said how often she sees a “duck-and-cover” strategy among leaders.


It’s a “keep-your-head-down, go-along-to-get-along, make-no-waves” posture. And there is no question it can work.


You see it in politics, executive leadership and within all levels of all organizations.


It’s safe, and almost no one gets fired for not doing something—not standing up, not taking a risk, not making a decision.


But isn’t that the exact opposite of what a leader is supposed to do?
