Nice or tough: Which approach engages employees most?
Harvard Business Review
It's probably no news to most people who work that poor leaders produce disgruntled, unengaged employees. Our research also shows convincingly that great leaders do the opposite — that is, that they produce highly committed, engaged and productive employees. And the difference is cavernous.

Quality over quantity is key to high performance
Business Insider
Put the schedule down for a second. Consider this: Maybe it's not about time. It's about energy. Energy, not time, is the fundamental currency of high performance. It's a qualitative lens instead of a quantitative one. Focusing on your time management skills sounds great, but all hours are not created equal.

Quit multitasking: How to unitask and get more done
Forbes
Many workers mastered the art of multitasking during the recession, when employees were expected to do more with less. People believe it saves them time and energy, and because we live in a culture where being busy is often seen as admirable and proof that we are successful, people often dub themselves a multitasker as a point of pride, says Lindsey Pollak, a career expert and author of Getting from College to Career.

Maxwell writes: "When all is said and done, your ability as a leader will not be judged by what you achieved personally or even by what your team accomplished during your tenure.

6 principles for developing humility as a leader
Harvard Business Review
Whether we’re looking at business or politics, sports or entertainment, it's clear we live in an era of self-celebration. Fame is equated with success, and being self-referential has become the norm. As a result we are encouraged to pump ourselves full of alarming self-confidence. Bluster and the alpha instinct, contends Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Harvard University professor of business psychology, often get mistaken for ability and effectiveness (at least for a while).

A crisis in leadership
By Michael J. Berens
Leaders must make difficult decisions that are not always popular. They instigate changes that upend people's lives and shift the balances of power and wealth.

But I suspect there are other forces at play.
