Bad Leadership: What It Is, How It Happens, Why It Matters based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
In her book Barbara Kellerman presents the argument that leadership and followership are directly connected. She explains that bad leadership is the result in most cases of bad followership. She explains bad leadership by dividing it into seven types: incompetent, rigid, intemperate, callous, corrupt, insular, and evil. Bad leadership by Barbara Kellerman is the first book I read about the other side of leadership, a topic that should be discuss more often since bad leadership is leadership also. It helps leaders to understand what bad behavior looks like and how to avoid it completely. It brings a completely different approach since it introduces the followers as a possible cause for bad leadership. It is important that leaders and followers are able to identify what bad leadership looks like and are prepare to deal with it.
