Have you ever been demeaned, insulted, offended and made to feel so insignificant by a boss of yours who behaves more like a jerk rather than a leader? If your answer is âYesâ, then youâre not alone.
You can face challenges. You can face adversities. But when you have to face and report to dumb leaders, itâs like hell on earth every day.
They can wear you down. They can make you sick. They can even drive you to a point wherein youâd question yourself, âWhat am I doing? Itâs not even worth it!â, and leave the workplace to discover that thereâs a world out there which is so much better because you donât have to report to Satan himself (or herself)! That the devil doesnât wear Prada; he or she wears your company uniform!
Dumb leaders abound, I can assure you that. Theyâre not intellectually challenged, but because theyâre extremely insecure, they cost the company big time!
How do leaders end up as âdumb leadersâ? Well, let me count the ways.
â¢ Dumb leaders, rather than devoting their time and attention to developing themselves and others, devote themselves to protecting their turf. They trust no one because they themselves are not trustworthy.
