10 Big Leadership Weaknesses by David Peck at Huffington Post on 16 November 2013
Many articles focus on highlighting desirable leadership skills; this article focuses on leadership weaknesses. It’s a fairly quick read, so I’ll give you an abbreviated version of some of them (you’ll have to read the article for the full list).
- Distancing yourself from your followers
- Using the wrong leadership style
- Not delivering on what you promise
- Over- or under-pessimism about people, strategies, or tactics
The good thing about this article is that it provides some ideas on how to solve each of those weaknesses. Myself, I would have joined two different weaknesses into one, leaving a free slot for “not having (or communicating) a vision” – if you don’t have one, why are you leading?
