A common mistake I see new leaders making when joining a team, an organization, or a government is the “Savior” Syndrome. The Savior Syndrome is the perception that my role is to fix things, people and others. You hear them say” It is Mess”… “It is terrible”… “It is awful… What new leaders don’t recognize is the impact of their words and actions on others who have been there before they even arrived and who will be there probably after they leave.
What Is The Savior Syndrome?
The Savior Syndrome or Complex is a psychological construct which makes a person feel the need to save other people or a situation all the times. This person has a strong tendency to seek situations or reframing existing situations as being a “Mess” so they can be the hero who fixes it, feel good about themselves and be appreciated by others.
