How To Lead A Team: The Horrible Way!

How To Lead A Team: The Horrible Way!

Leadership and a good leadership – both are two very different terms, in a broader sense. Leadership is not just about being a leader and instruct your followers, to make rules for them, to pose restrictions on them, etc. this is a common misconception – that those who are at top are called “leaders” and others who are the ones who “follow” them.

However, the fact is, honestly – just because you are at a top position doesn’t necessarily makes you a leader. Though some people would like to show off wearing that badge to show others “who is the boss” here – most of them are usually horrible bosses. Which obviously, they don’t, or won’t realise – even if someone shows them the truth.

When you are on a job, it mostly means working on teams. Teams would have leader too – some good, some okay, but some would have bad leadership qualities . Because everyone doesn’t know how to be a good leader – or basically, how to lead a team, the good way. Because, many team leaders are thrown into the role without training in many areas – building consensus, setting agendas, meeting deadlines, encouraging good ideas, and so on. This turns them into having poor leadership qualities.

Trying to think from a different perspective – not all leaders are created equal. This is the problem many organizations are suffering from – not being able to recognize good leaders from bad ones.

But, as they say, there is a solution to every single problem. If you really want to determine someone’s leadership ability, give them some responsibility and see what they do with it. It’s not always pretty, especially with leaders having bad leadership skills, but good leaders will find a way to get the job done.

Coming back to the topic – horrible bosses. No, not the movie – but the actual cases. So, what are those ways those horrible leaders lead their team, basically? Let’s read on a little more to determine what is bad leadership:

They Always Want To Be THE Star

Always want to be star

“The leader should take all the credit” – wrong! Absolutely wrong! When you are working in a team, the results are produced by team efforts. A good leader would never take all of the credit of the work, and pose as THE star. They would give the credit to whole team, instead. If a leader doesn’t serve well with the concept of “service first” – he is a bad leader. Ego, pride, and arrogance these are not positive leadership traits. A leader’s job is to inspire, guide, direct, teach, motivate, and ultimately help others succeed – not to steal the spotlight. Real leaders know how to step back and let others shine.

Expecting Others To Follow The Rules They Themselves Don’t Follow

rules

Leaders should be able to set an example – a good one on that. And for that, they need to follow the same rules they expect their teams to follow. When you are leading a team, you need to take every person with you agreeing with you – ensuring that they are on the same page that you are. You can’t set different set of rules for your team than the ones you follow. A leader should be one from the team members – well, not literally. Being a leader, you have so much of an influence on your team–even down to the smallest habit.

Making Promises They Can’t Keep

promises

There is no worse habit as a leader than making promises you know you can’t keep. Team never welcomes such kind of bad habit, in fact they start to follow the same. A leader has a responsibility towards its team – whatever he does influences his team members too. The fastest way to lose respect as a leader is to say you’re going to do something and then not do it.

Firstly, it’s because it encourages a very bad habit in those around you, it is so crucial that you do the things you say you are going to do. If you want to climb the ranks, this is one of the most effective ways to do it. Keep your word and people will soon learn that they can count on you.

Not Genuinely Admitting When They Are Wrong

admit when they are wrong

Not only leaders, but in general sense too – it is believed that, admitting to a mistake is a sign of weakness. However, it is just the opposite. Admitting to your mistakes is the most bravest thing you can ever do. Being incapable to owning up to your wrongs makes your team question whether or not they can trust you. Owning up to mistakes will establish trust and an even playing field with you and your team. When you own up to your mistakes, it gives a bigger scope of improvement – and those who can’t improve or learn, can never grow as a leader.

Criticize Others But Can’t Take Criticism

criticize others but

There are two types of criticism – healthy criticism and harsh criticism. Healthy criticism is how teams members push each other to improve and get better. Harsh criticism is what makes people unwilling and instills fear in them. It affects the self-esteem of the people. If your style of leadership is healthy and positive, expect others to do the same with you–which means you too will continue growing and improving. But if your style of leadership is harsh, then expect the same to come back to you–or worse, cause your entire team to go silent.
