Bad leadership is…

I spend a lot of time reading/thinking about leadership. While I think it’s valuable to think about what makes for *great* leadership, in wonder if it’s equally, if not more valuable to be able to identify the characteristics of *bad* leadership. Think of it as “leadership anti-patterns”:

Bad leadership is…
…about you, instead of them
…about taking, instead of giving
…about power, instead of empowerment
…about “my vision”, instead of *our vision*
…doing what’s expedient and easy, instead of doing what’s right and hard
…exercising control, instead of the control you can relinquish
…taking credit, instead of giving credit

What leadership anti-patterns have you observed? Perhaps more importantly, which anti-patterns are you guilty of? :p
