In ITV’s recent interview of Lord Sugar, Piers Morgan seemed determined to probe Lord Sugar’s emotional side. How did he fair?
There’s no doubt Morgan is an effective interviewer, although for my money Lord Sugar got far more amusement for the audience by taking the mickey out of Morgan.
But is Lord Sugar emotional? Does it matter?
Of course he is! We all are. But to be effective in business or in any other area we can’t afford to spend all our time in tears.
On the other hand to feel is to care. Caring improves engagement, naturally. Engagement with others is the foundation of more effective leadership.
Caring starts at home. Lord Sugar movingly described how he regretted not spending more time with his mother.
I watch these shows to learn, and to be entertained. I learn more when I am moved more.
