Emily Douglas cites “9 bad habits leaders need to quit” (October 2017).
These destructive practices, listed in no particular order, are:
- Ignoring feedback
- Taking all the credit
- Outdated appraisal systems
- Not taking risks
- Condescending behaviour
- Being a tyrant
- Not praising your staff
Consider the list. Then choose one that you’re guilty of. What can you do about it tomorrow?
And if you’re not a leader, which item might you speak to your own leader about … and by doing so, help them to get better?
