Are You Sure You're Not a Bad Boss?

Are You Sure You're Not a Bad Boss? | Leadership & Innovation | Scoop.it

Conjure up the term "bad boss" and what comes to mind? Scenes of red-faced people berating subordinates in public. Smarmy souls taking credit for other people's work or saying one thing and doing another.

 

But it is more than that. Zenger and Folkman's research article suggests that the offensive actions so often associated with being a bad boss make up less than 20% of the behavior that actually defines the worst bosses.

 

Here's the list in order, from the most to the least fatal:
1. Failure to inspire, owing to a lack of energy and enthusiasm.
2. Acceptance of mediocre performance in place of excellent results.
3. A lack of clear vision and direction.
4. An inability to collaborate and be a team player.
5. Failure to walk the talk.
6. Failure to improve and learn from mistakes.
7. An inability to lead change or innovate owing to a resistance to new ideas.
8. A failure to develop others.
9. Inept interpersonal skills.
10. Displays of bad judgment that leads to poor decisions.
