Bad Leadership argues that it’s time to embrace a more honest, holistic view of leadership that acknowledges the dark side of human nature and its impact on leaders and followers alike. In a provocative departure from conventional thinking, Barbara Kellerman contends that bad leadership is not an aberration, but a ubiquitous and insidious part of everyday life that must be carefully examined and better understood.
Caring and counterintuitive, Bad Leadership underscores that leadership is a shared responsibility no one can ignore. By forcing us to examine, and thereby to understand, leadership’s dark side, Kellerman illuminates the ways that all of us can become better leaders and followers. Buy this book.
