A Bad Manager can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation.

We have all had to deal with bad bosses at one time or the other throughout our career. We scream, complain, lose the Typical drive, become demotivated, do barely enough to get by, or inevitably jump ship. If you are dealing with a bad boss here are a few examples of characteristics that depicts the behavior.

  1. Lack of vision and inability to communicate effectively
  2. Micromanaging
  3. Thinking you have all the answers and that you must have all the answers
  4. Working late everyday
  5. Poor Hiring Decisions
  6. Failure to Admit Mistakes
  7. Takes the credit but gives the blame
  8. Provides little/no feedback or coaching
  9. Shows favoritism
  10. Task-focused vs team-oriented
  11. Selects and leads based on “like me”
  12. Ignores diversity of thought or varying opinions
  13. Past focused vs present/future
  14. Being a friend instead of a leader
  15. Failing to delegate and demonstrate trust
  16. Allowing ego and pride to get in the way of good decisions
  17. Personal agendas/motives

If you are a new manager, reflect on these characteristics. Recognize the signs and plan to change. You will then be on your way to becoming a good leader.
