I was recently interviewed by Cornelius Fichtner from The Project Management Podcast about Supportive Leadership. Here is the interview:
Here is what Cornelius writes about the interview:
Have you heard of supportive leadership? I certainly had not. I knew what servant leadership was, but the concept of supportive leadership was a definite unknown.
The good news is that Joseph is a prolific writer who has a number of articles on the topic. He reviews the concept from various angles and he also has a number of great examples of how he works with his customers to implement supportive leadership in their organizations and how he uses the concept as a project leader himself. You’ll be able to incorporate all of this as part of your own project leadership almost right away.
And of course we will also touch upon the main difference between supportive leadership and servant leadership. You’ll be just as surprised as I was.
