New Concepts Repository

I thought about a thread for sharing and analyzing:

  • New concepts
  • New mindsets
  • New ways of looking at old things

The first one I was thinking about is:

VALUE-TAKING LEADERSHIP

While showering it dawned on me that value-taking leaders all use same formulas to sway and manipulate people into following them.

So we could make a new category of value-taking leaders, and share what those techniques and manipulations are.

Some of them:

  • Fire-starting: feigns being shocked, angry, and scandalized to frame others as unworthy. This is a "power surge", it often dissipates, but some firestarters make it their business to keep a constant fire-engine on
  • Make up an enemy:
  • Make up a problem:
  • Inflates a risk/danger: "you HAVE TO protect yourself" often translates into "you have to keep following me"
  • Feign interest in serving the followers:

What do you guys think of the "value-taking leadership" concept?
Could it be useful as a note/warning, maybe in the lessons/articles on manipulation or leadership?

I have actual conversations about people in a certain field admitting to me these techniques.
It would be very interesting and relevant to discuss.
I'm a bit afraid to write the details of the actual conversations.
Let's say it's the profession where you should avoid mentioning when looking for houses.

Well, now you made us curious, Matthew ๐Ÿ™‚
