Staff even complain privately to each other about their managers. After all, what are the fundamental differences between a good director and a bad supervisor in the minds of employees? What kind of leadership will be classified as one of the competent that staffs will not willing to work with?

First and foremost, indecisive supervisors who are naturally cautious before making any decision and have to repeatedly study and analysis from various angles, only under the urging of their subordinates can make a decision. But the most troubling is that they will go back to overturn the earlier decision they made or the words they said, and they will change their direction and commands, so employees won’t know what to do.

Second, fiery temper type Supervisor seems to have a fuse which is burned down easily in their head, and always fly into a rage in between a couple of words, they cursing, roaring and throwing files are commonplace for the subordinates. In fact, even if the staff really made a mistake, the inflammatory response of supervisor often make things even worse since the more afraid of employees were, they will be anxious to do something to remedy the situation, but easy to make the wrong decision in panic.

When emotional supervisors enter the office, they will have a large degree of emotional ups and downs which make the employees not want to get close to them. When they mention their competitors, they will gnash their teeth in anger like facing the feud; whether happy, angry or sad, their mood not only showed on their face, but also greatly affected employees. In fact, the employees’ emotions often closely linked with the managers’ mood, a dramatic supervisor will only increase others’ additional psychological burden in their spare time.

Conservative feudal bosses are those who are still basking in the organization or company’s past feats, often talk about the past record that they made. In addition, they use it to motivate new employees, and even asked them to follow, but do not consider adopting young people’s recommendations which are more in line with the current status. In addition, this inflexible approach is not only very far from reality, but is difficult to wake up the staff’s sense of identity.

The most common type of boss is that they always put all the credit that the department or team has achieved on them, this kind of directors like to stand in the spotlight and accepted the praise everyone from, but never mention of the hard work of team members.

Last but not least, some superiors will be in the team to ferret out a scapegoat for them to admit as long as the team made a mistake; rather than clarify the attribution of responsibility to find solutions. In fact, most of the major errors can be related to the misalignment of communicating with the interior; the frequency of occurrence of real individual errors are not many, but the only they do is damage relations with subordinates.
