    Healthy leaders demonstrate a selfless intent for the good of others, practice integrity, use their skills to empower others, and have a track record of high moral character and competence. Leadership is “an influence relationship among leaders and followers who intend real changes that reflect their mutual purpose.” (Joseph Rost in Leadership for the 21st Century)

    Leadership is:

    • Influence without authority
    • Neither manipulative nor coercive
    • The healthy interaction between leaders and follower
    • Focused on growth and improvement
    • The pursuit of a common vision
    • The pursuit of a common mission

    • Sabotage team performance thru public humiliation, demoralization, micromanagement, and turnover.

    • Distract workers from performing the mission by creating self-serving drama.
    • Create conflict and polarize people and groups in order to maintain their position of power.
    • Create confusion and suspicion through erratic and ambiguous behavior and discrediting experts who counter their perspective.
    • Exercise power and control even if it means destroying the organization, the institution, and people’s careers, lives, and success.
    • Have clear detrimental effects on organizational performance and finances.
    • Erode the organization from within. They are a covert, insider threat.

    Myths of Toxic Leaders

    • Toxic leaders are overtly verbally abusive.
    Actually, research indicates that most toxic leaders demonstrate passive hostility, using spin and snide comments to belittle others. They know how to operate under the threshold of a clear violation.
    • Toxic leaders are incompetent.
    Actually, toxic leaders are often highly skilled in a few areas, which provide power and influence. They use their skills to create a co-dependent relationship with the organization. People often say, “We need him/her.”
    • Toxic leaders are irritating but don’t cause any harm.
    Actually, research indicates toxic leaders cause a great deal of harm. They not only bring negativity. They degrade individual and team performance, motivation, innovation, collaboration, and cohesion. They create a tax on the bottom line by wasting resources, time, finances, and team members as they manipulate for personal gain.
    • Toxic leaders contribute a lot so we need to tolerate them.
    Actually, although toxic leaders may contribute to the organization, the net result of their behavior is a tax. They always act for their own good. Organizations and members are better off not tolerating their abusive and disrespectful behavior.

    Toxic leaders are not simply poor leaders, but are those who sabotage teams for personal gain. They have clear detrimental effects on performance.

    Organizational Change

    In this fast-paced world, organizations must constantly adapt to respond to external forces and internal requirements. Every organization has an espoused culture (its stated vision, mission, and values) and an actual culture (the way things actually get done). Integrity exists when the actions of the organization and its members are consistent with the stated culture. The organization’s actual culture, a.k.a., status quo, influences its ability to adapt for performance, to respond to customers, to address toxic behavior of members, to solve problems, and to innovate for new opportunities. We serve our clients by helping organizations transform their cultures into workplaces that eliminate toxic leader behaviors, reinforce respect, organize for effective operations, and promote innovation.
