Some leaders are completely clueless. They are generally unaware of everything important and compound their ignorance by making bad decisions that you have to execute. If you report to an idiot, organizational life can be a very painful experience.
Ha, I love this post. I guess we’ve all been there!
We do need to be careful sometimes however that we aren’t missing a bigger picture that they can see that we can’t.
From our point of view, decisions can seem crazy but they are often having to balance off different priorities or nuance.
And of course, they could have their own moronic boss that is fuelling some of their moronic decisions! Maybe if that’s true you really do need to leave!
Well it was sent out on April fools day...
Great advice but idiot is such an ugly word. I try not to think about people that way. Puts me in a weird space. I’m not advocating in coming up for another name or anything, just using negative labels tend to effect you more than them (I guarantee you they don’t think of themselves as an idiot).
