The 5 Things Bad Bosses Fail to Do

Dwight Mihalicz,

The sad fact about the working world today is that most of us have encountered a terrible boss at some point in our careers. Sometimes it’s difficult for subordinates to pinpoint what it is that makes the leaders awful, but they are always aware when their job unhappiness is caused by their superior.

A possible solution to this problem is self-awareness. For a lousy boss to become better, they need to know how good bosses work. Once they become aware of how they’re letting their subordinates down, they can work on improving their managerial abilities. Let’s have a look at the five things bad bosses fail to do:

4 Reasons Why a Leadership Program Is a Must for Aspiring and Current CEOs

Dwight Mihalicz,

There’s no successful organization without competent leadership. The weight on every CEO’s shoulders is considerable, and the pressure can mount high. When the future of an entire organization depends on your leadership skills, you need to be capable of answering the challenge.

However, it can be easy to forget that CEOs need proper support in doing their job. Since the CEO’s role is critical for organizational performance, providing that support is important. Since they sometimes have to make split-second decisions, it’s vital for CEOs to be confident in their leadership skills — and to hone them. Let’s have a look at four reasons why a leadership program is a must for aspiring and current CEOs:

3 Smart Strategies to Bring Out Your Team’s Potential

Dwight Mihalicz,

Assembling a team can be a difficult task. There are all kinds of problems that may arise once people start working together. Certain personalities may clash, expectations may turn out to be too high, and employees could end up struggling to give their best every day.

As the one who hired them so they can contribute to the bottom line of your organization,  your team is your accountability. Fortunately, you can help your employees to improve their performance — and it’s not by merely demanding better work.

Here are three smart strategies to bring out your team’s potential:

Bad Bosses Destroy Good Staff

Dwight Mihalicz,

Good leadership is often missing from the workplace these days, and it’s one of the main reasons for employee unhappiness. To paraphrase and repurpose Tolstoy’s famous opening of Anna Karenina, we could say those good bosses are all alike, but each lousy boss is terrible in their way. In other words, there are key attributes and traits of a good boss and leader — but when those are missing, you get a terrible boss who could exhibit any number and combination of negative leadership traits.

While employees may feel like they’re wrong for blaming their unhappiness on the boss, the fact remains that a bad boss can destroy good staff. Almost every employee has been in this situation. Sadly, most bosses have also been in this situation, and this is where they probably learned the traits of being a bad boss.
