Cultural Norms in IT Breed Toxic Employees, Training Exec Says

Cultural Norms in IT Breed Toxic Employees, Training Exec Says | Leadership, Toxic Leadership, and Systems Thinking | Scoop.it
CEO of a leadership and training company speaks about points revealed from a survey on toxic employees and adds examples from her own experiences.
george_reed's insight:

It is an open question whether there is more or less toxicity in different professional contexts. Nurses reportedly experience a high degree of abusive supervision, and there seems to be anecdotal evidence that destructive leadership is fairly common in the financial services sector. There just isn't enough data to say one way or the other at this point. Dissertation subject anyone?

I find some of the research on generational differences unconvincing. It looks good at first glance, but when we aggregate an entire generation we find that the variation with the group of interest is too great to support assertions at the individual level.

Toxic Leaders Interview conducted by George Reed, of Leadership Studies at the USD - YouTube

Toxic Leaders Interview conducted by George Reed, Associate Professor of Leadership Studies at the University of San Diego

Jean Lipman-Blumen is a wonderful person and a world-class scholar. This interview was part of a graduate course where the students prepared the questions and introductions while I played the host. They read her work before the class. We later turned off the lights and camera and engaged in a wonderful dialogue.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 18, 2014 6:16 AM

This a wonderful interview, once you get to it.  The introduction is long  but you can skip ahead around 2:30 to get to the interview.  


I truly admire Dr. Lipman-Blumen and totally agree with her views on what the media causes and her perspective on why toxic leaders get ahead. 


One of my favorite parts is when she asks the audience how many of them have experienced a toxic leader and the majority of the audiences raises the hands. 


Long but worth the time!
