Ways to Determine if the Leadership At Your Workplace is Poor

  • Staff either want to retire or leave for a better job. High turnover.
  • Employees have no trust in leadership. Leadership may have been unprofessional in the past (i.e. lied to staff or did not keep confidentiality about private matters).
  •  Employees don’t volunteer or have any ambition. Low morale.
  • No respect for leadership.
  • Lawsuits and/or complaints have been filed.
  • Staff questions who really is in charge. Others (i.e. coworkers) constantly putting ideas in the leader’s ear.
  • Flip Flopping agenda. Leadership contradicting the way the office conducts business.
  • Little to no productivity. People just don’t take pride in the work and could care less about the mission.
  • Excessive leave usage. Employees have no desire to come to work.
  • No one smiles in the office. A lot of backroom chatter about how much they dislike the job.
  • Employees become argumentative.
  • Acts of vandalism to leadership property.
