Video/ Leaders, the Importance of Taking Responsibility
A few days ago Mark Zuckerberg took responsibility for the data breach scandal at Facebook and in this video Massimo Magni, of the Department of Management & Technology, highlights the importance of taking such actions. In first place, he explains, for leaders to develop trust with employees, within the company and with external shareholders. Instead, when leaders don’t take responsibility people don’t feel comfortable in speaking up or sharing ideas and knowledge which can hinder the creativity and innovation of a company. It is also vital that leaders admit responsibility promptly so that such action is not perceived as insincere or forced under pressure.
