Great Leaders Make Sure Monday Morning Doesn’t Suck

Your only job as a leader is to make sure Monday morning doesn’t suck. It’s that simple. If you lead people, you’re there to create a culture that high performers want to be a part of.

By telling real stories from his 25-year career in corporate America, Eric talks about the value of working for some good leaders, but how lucky he was to work for some bad ones too. He’s helping companies reimagine the modern workplace as one of employee self-determination, mutual respect, and highly engaged leadership.

Frankly, good leaders lead. They don’t micromanage, they don’t delude themselves into thinking they have all the answers. They build a team of experts who have the skills and answers they lack, and they work tirelessly to make the lives of those team members easier. If you’re a leader making all the decisions—this might be hard to hear—you have bigger issues than you think, and your high performers might be on the way out.

With Great Leaders Make Sure Monday Morning Doesn’t Suck, Harkins speaks directly to leaders with refreshing candor that challenges them to reconsider their leadership approach while detailing the traits that any modern leader must exhibit to make sure Monday morning doesn’t suck. His LEAD traits are a North Star for leaders as they embark on this new and critical mission. Beginning with the first expectation he has for leaders: “Create a culture high performers want to be a part of,” Harkins pulls no punches on his way down the list of LEAD: Leadership Expectations and Development and eventually onward to a future of people-driven growth.

Begging the question “What happens when we treat adults like adults at work?” Eric Harkins reminds leaders of three key truths: it’s okay to have fun at work, poor performing employees don’t quit voluntarily, and assholes are assholes—they don’t change.

Advocating for an iterative review cycle and a culture of freedom through accountability, the system Harkins lays out in Great Leaders Make Sure Monday Morning Doesn’t Suck will help you weed out the assholes weighing down your team, elevate your high performers so they stick around for the long haul, and ultimately grow your business in a way that reverberates outward from a happy and empowered workforce.
