Interview with Professor Rebecca Mitchell, Macquarie University. Inspirational leaders can bring harmony to a workplace, but a
new study suggests it could undermine innovation and productivity by making people complacent. Mitchell says the belief that
one is doing fine leads to complacency. She says hospitals were the target of her study, citing how medical errors occur.
Mitchell says leaders should always watch whether their followers are innovating and address the issue of complacency.
