Times change and so must leadership. With cultural diversity in the virtual workplace and generational differences challenging comfort zones, leaders must focus on balance and blend not just extreme leadership.  

Leaders, be careful of thinking that extreme actions will push the organization over the top! It may push it over the cliff instead.

Leadership is no longer just about blazing trails and pushing people to do the same.  It’s about finding balance and moderation AND not confusing it with status quo and mediocrity.  

In my blog post for Todd Nielsen’s 2014 International Leadership blogathon, I offer 3 specific extremes to avoid and what to do instead. There’s a discussion heating up on it at Todd’s blog. Read and discuss at Extreme Leadership: Do You Seek Excellence Only in Extremes?
