Bad leaders pretending to be good leaders – it’s a real issue!
Some simple, even clever, ways to address the disconnect
In this episode of What’s YOUR Problem? Chief Goldfeder tackles this reader question:
I recently learned that one of our chief officers is speaking about leadership at a regional event. This officer is pretty much the last person who should be speaking about leadership in any form. He’s condescending, unhelpful and basically hangs in the office until there’s a call. What’s worse is that he always blames any failings on his subordinates, never takes responsibility when he messes up. I don’t plan on saying anything about this – and don’t even really have a question beyond ‘how does this happen – bad leaders pretending they are good leaders.
