David Hain's insight:

Good list - easy to do a self-evaluation (honest of course) or even better, a 360.

from the article:


Here are Longenecker’s 12 characteristics of really bad bosses:

~Are arrogant, prideful, inflexible, and always right.

~Are unprincipled, untrustworthy, misrepresent the truth, and lie.

~Fail to create clear direction and clarify performance expectations.

~Are ineffective at providing effective performance feedback and recognition.

~Are really bad communicators.

~Are erratic and have unpredictable behavior and moods.

~Take credit and avoid blame.

~Do not plan effectively and are crisis driven.

~Do not develop their people or help them get ahead.

~Do not solve problems or improve processes.

~Are technically incompetent and lack talent.

~Make unwise, ill-informed, and ineffective decisions.
