The High Cost Of The Bad Boss
Source: American Management Association
Most people who have been in the workforce for a while have suffered at least one bad boss. The tales about such managers can become the stuff of legend or satire. But those tales can also mask the real costs of bad bosses to individual employees and the organization as a whole. Bad bosses range from the extreme cases of terrible bullies and actual psychopaths (Deutschman 2005) to garden-variety disorganized or demotivating supervisors. Likewise, their effects can be wide-ranging.
