Whenever we think of leadership, we turn to the Internet to learn more about it. However, all you have to do is to read this article to learn more.
I have compiled an article on leadership, which cannot be compared to another. Read on to see if I prove myself right.
There seems to be a real deficit in good leadership and a large surplus of poor and pathetic leadership in many businesses today.
One can easily find example after example of poor and pathetic leadership and the resulting impacts on employees, in particular, and the health of the business, in general.
So what are these poor and pathetic styles of leadership? Below is a list of ten styles of poor and pathetic leadership.
We have to be very flexible when talking to children about leadership. They seem to interpret things in a different way from the way we see things!
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #1: NON-VISIONARY
This style totally lacks a clearly focused and defined vision for the business.
We do hope that you find the information here something worth recommending others to read and think about once you complete reading all there is about leadership.
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #2: UNETHICAL
This style has a total lack of commitment to high ethical standards and high standards of personal conduct.
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #3: INFLEXIBLE
This style exhibits an unwillingness to adapt to change.
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #4: DISHONEST
This style has a lack of honesty and includes being prone to lying, cheating and/or stealing.
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #5: SELF-CENTERED
This style has the character of an egotist and someone who will always put self above any other interest of the company and/or employees.
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #6: INCOMPETENT
This style has someone with a lack of experience, skill and/or training to be a leader.
We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about leadership that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #7: LOOSE CANON
This style has someone with a lack of self-control and discipline.
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #8: UNCARING
This style totally ignores or disregards the needs, wants and desires of others, especially employees.
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #9: ISOLATIONIST
This style minimizes or disregards the needs and well being of anyone outside the group or employees where they have direct responsibility.
There are many varieties of leadership found today. However, we have stuck to the description of only one variety to prevent confusion!
Poor & Pathetic Leadership Style #10: SABOTEUR
This style includes deliberate actions to disrupt, prevent or in some way cause to fail or falter the implementation of new ideas and changes or something the leader opposes doing.
Okay – what are some of the impacts of these poor and pathetic leadership styles? A 2005 survey by Price Waterhouse Coopers found U.S. companies spent an average of 48 days and $3,270 filling a vacancy. Another nationwide survey showed 67% of working adults ere actually looking for another job and another 34% plan to change employers within the next 3 years.
The American Institute of Certified Accountants found 83% of their member firms cited the inability to retain employees as a factor in their ability to grow their business.
And another survey found that 85% of managers believed employees leave because of pay or better opportunities, while 80% of employees said it was poor management practices or toxic cultures as the reason for their leaving. WOW – there seems to be a big disconnect on this one.
I challenge you to have “zero tolerance” for any of these poor and pathetic leadership styles in your business or organization.
Take Care and God Bless,
