Dealing With The 'No-Boss Boss'
Source: American Management Association
So what is a "Bad" boss? Essentially, any boss who is difficult and hard to deal with or who has trouble directing and guiding employees to effectively do the work can qualify as a bad boss. One of the most frustrating kinds of bad bosses is the boss who really isn't there: the "No-boss boss." This is the opposite of the overly aggressive, controlling, or micromanaging boss. It's the boss who manages by not managing; the leader who leads by not leading. This boss often does not make decisions and lets things ride until someone else has to make the decision.
