Podcast: Interview with Steve Balzac


I met with my friend Steve Balzac, author of "Organizational Psychology for Managers," and asked the following questions:

1. Many tech companies handle leadership by promoting an engineer to team management/leadership. Is it true that engineers only respect other engineers as team leaders? What does that do to team performance?

2. You mention the use of games in chapter 8. How can games be used to develop leadership skills and inspire innovation?

3. How can I apply the principles in your book to promote effective organizational change? How can gamification help me there as well?
