Why Donald Trump Is a Poor Leader
Today I’m going to talk to you about why Donald Trump is such a poor leader. There’s a quote by a guy called Eric Sevareid who said “Next to power without honour, the most dangerous thing in the world is power without humour.”
The way Donald Trump can’t laugh at himself actually makes him seem very weak.
There have been many studies over the years – one for example by Martha Kramer from Harvard Business School – that showed that the way you are perceived as a leader is incredibly enhanced by you having a sense of humour and being able to laugh at yourself.
So we perceive Donald Trump as being a flawed and scared leader because he just is so prone to lashing out anytime anyone makes fun of him.
So the lesson for you in this is if you’d like to be perceived as a really powerful and really great and competent leader, then have the ability to laugh at yourself.
Use humour in your business communications and your business strategies again and again and again.
