It rarely works, and if it does it fails to work, it doesn’t last very long. I was once a witness to an executive who was famous for beating his fist and screaming at top of his lungs in what were known as “wire-brush” meetings. This was used to “scrub” initiatives and projects that weren’t performing well. Instead of teaching and coaching, he created a fear-based environment for vendor and project managers. Others, reporting to him, began copying his toxic behavior and spreading it among their colleagues. The local storm started as a nuisance but soon became part of the workplace culture. The executives responsible rationalized bullying.
