ArLyne's Diamonds

A running commentary of ideas

Friday, November 02, 2007


Webster defines a sycophant as someone who is a self-seeking servile flatterer, or a fawning parasite. When executives surround themselves with "yes" men and women, that's who they are attracting.

When people are so sensitive to anyone disagreeing with them, they surround themselves with people who flatter and please. This is dangerous for them as individuals and especially dangerous for the organizations they lead/manage.

If you have to be the center of attention, the "queen" or "king" or "prince" or "princess" you never assume an adult role and responsibility for the organization you serve - or anything else you are doing with your life.

Sycophants are the one's who designed the new clothes for the emperor.....
