Be Like Ted

How a leader takes responsibility: They admit fallibility. They ask forgiveness. They explicitly create space for speaking up.

And they mean it! 

It’s almost like #TedLasso has been studying The Fearless Organization. Chapter 7, The Leader’s Toolkit, to be precise.  

If only. But the message is there and that’s what counts. 

Coach Ted Lasso owning up to his mistake in front of his team.

Biscuits With The Boss, and Lasso Leadership

I’ve been thinking about #TedLasso’s biscuits with the boss.

It’s a pretty bold culture change initiative that goes in a non-traditional direction: upwards.

In real life, managing up is tricky. 

It helps to have Ted’s fearlessness and force of personality; it helps to have Ted’s race and gender. It helps to be in upper management, like Ted.  

But in a climate of good #PsychologicalSafety, you can almost see it working.
