I looked at this article and translated it into the education world. Teachers and staff who are frustrated with management sometimes leave, but more often they remain, and remain stagnant. The ideas here can be used to help you get rid of that stagnation. Don't be the reason teachers aren't open to new ideas. Don't be the reason teachers isolate themselves and won't share their good ideas with others. Don;t be the reason teachers aren't receptive to change. Don't "use up" your excellent and enthusiastic teachers and not give them credit for your success. Read on for insight into how.

Toxic Leaders and the Social Environments that Breed Them

Toxic Leaders and the Social Environments that Breed Them | Whole Brain Leadership | Scoop.it
A National Public Radio news investigation aired this week covers the topic of toxic leadership in the military. It focuses on an anthropology professor named David Matsuda who was working with the army in Iraq to help understand local cultures.
Bill Palladino - MLUI's insight:

Have you ever known a toxic leader?  If not, "suck it in doormat and give 100 pushups!"  Sound familiar to anyone?

more...
John Michel's curator insight, January 10, 1:21 PM

One reason that toxic leadership persists in the army is because performance is evaluated in a top-down fashion. In a military chain of command, this means that toxic leaders can keep their subordinates under their thumbs and they are also pretty good at currying favor with their superiors. Hence, toxic leaders remain in place and are even promoted, despite their toxic ways. A new bottom-up evaluation procedure that enables subordinates to evaluate their leaders is showing promise.
