True Impact of Incompetent Uncaring Leaders | #Leadership #PeopleSkills
by Kate Nasser |
When we picture incompetent uncaring leaders, we don’t often think of the true impact on everyone. We speak of leaders’ specific actions or lack of action and the resulting trouble they create. Yet what is the true impact of incompetent uncaring leaders? This is worth considering if you want to become a leader. It is also critical for those choosing who the leaders will be.
Impact of Incompetent Uncaring Leaders
As a consultant, I have coached many leaders on improving their leadership skills. Most of them improve because they want to be great leaders. They listen to feedback, change their behaviors, and continuously learn and grow. They aren’t perfect yet they work toward excellence.
Incompetent Uncaring Leaders:
Have little interest in changing and growing
Think that emotional intelligence is a bunch of hooey
Make everything all about themselves
Make things up instead of finding and speaking the truth
Treat people with great disregard
Surround themselves with people who flatter them
Have poor planning and strategy skills
Make poor decisions or none at all
Take credit for other’s success and blame others for the failures
The True Impact of All This
A giant void. As the incompetent uncaring leaders don’t change and grow, people are left wanting for true leadership.
Poor morale. Working for a narcissistic disdainful leader makes people feel unimportant and unappreciated.
Loss of trust. No trust in the leader often creates mistrust among those who must struggle to survive in this negative space.
Daily never-ending chaos. Incompetent uncaring leaders who have poor planning and strategy skills, create constant unrest and struggle.
Failure and hopelessness for everyone. When people work for leaders who are failing, they fail too. It’s a horrible feeling to know you can’t succeed no matter what you do — because you work for incompetent uncaring leaders.
To put it simply …
Everything incompetent uncaring leaders do that they shouldn’t do and everything that they should do and don’t do falls on and impacts others.
