Thanks Leadership Freak for these three ways leaders drive people nuts
#1. Respond emotionally to problems, failure, or tough situations.
Emotionally unpredictable leaders are bullies.
People walk on eggshells when you’re emotionally unpredictable. Emotional leaders distract and drain teammates.
Make snap decisions in the moment. Change your mind later.
Throw-up your hands in frustration.
Passion goes right when it invigorates and wrong when it intimidates.
Emotionally steady leaders enable boldness.
#2. Show up unprepared for meetings.
Arrive late and make excuses.
Search for meeting notes after you arrive.
Ask to be briefed after you arrive.
Hold meetings without clear purpose or agendas.
Busyness is never an excuse for lack of preparation.
Lack of preparation makes others feel you’re incompetent.
#3. Appear disinterested during one on ones
Finish a task after your appointment arrives. “I”ll be right with you. I just need to finish this email.”
Answer email while someone is talking.
Keep looking at your phone or watch.
