One of the toughest challenges faced in leading a turnaround is striking the right balance between being demanding and tough to ensure that business goals are achieved, and leading in a way that engages the workforce to ensure that individual members of the team excel in performance. 

There are far too many leaders who actually believe that to be successful, you have to be “take-no-prisoners” tough, demanding,  and willing to publicly ridicule an underperforming executive in order to create an example for others.   When challenged about their style these executives typically offer an excuse masquerading as a pillar of integrity — that they owe people something called unvarnished honesty.  What a nice sounding phrase for a publicly demeaning experience in front of colleagues.
