50 posts 50 rules: Tom Peters on Leadership 31

31. Leaders honor the assassins in their own organizations. 

I think this rule is a load of crap actually. Maybe it’s the wording but I have no intention of honoring assassins. Again it’s in the wording. I do believe in encouraging those with alternate points of view, those who challenge the system. Heck I am one of those. I do not like the implication of an assassin to calculating, too cold too brutal, no I would honor mavericks but not assassins.

Challenge: Would you honor an assassin in your organization? If so why? Post a comment on the blog and weigh in.
