This book is about worries. It’s not about money troubles. The U.S. 11 Profiles in Bad Leadership Behavior. CIO — Most of us have worked for a bad supervisor at one point in our lives.

11 Profiles in Bad Leadership Behavior

(If you haven't, consider yourself very lucky.) Perhaps they yelled a lot and kept everyone walking on egg shells, or maybe they couldn't or wouldn't articulate what they expected. However it manifests itself, bad leadership can kill your company's productivity and can spread like a cancer. The important thing for your career goals is that you don't let yourself fall into any of these bad management traps.

Just because you hold a leadership position doesn't mean you are a good leader. According to Brush, many people in leadership positions don't understand that employees don't come self-motivated. The effects of bad leadership can range from mundane to catastrophic. To make sure you keep your career on an upward trajectory, it's important to determine where your strengths and shortcomings lie.
