Metabolism is the chemical process that occurs within a living organism in order to maintain life. If that were not enough, we learn there are two kinds of metabolism: constructive and destructive.
One involves the synthesis of various components that strengthen life and the other breaks it down.
The application is not hard to make. Leaders carry the responsibility of pulling together the processes needed to maintain the life and health of the organization.
Two types of leaders exist in this realm. Constructive leaders synthesize the components needed to strengthen life and destructive leaders constantly look for ways to tear it down.
Which one are you?
