Four Leadership Qualities that Should Be Avoided
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 07:29 AM by UpInArms
The following list was taken shamelessly from this article

1) An obsession with acquiring prestige, power and wealth.” This, coupled with an inability to delay gratification, suggests that a chief executive may put his/her interests ahead of the country's.

2) A reputation for shameless self-promotion and other self-aggrandizing behaviors.”

3) A tendency to create “grandiose strategies” without including a detailed plan for how they will be carried out.

4) The ability to compartmentalize and rationalize to an amazing degree. This trait is shared by dysfunctional people, among them bad chief executives and criminals.

(edited for clarity)

2. Ok, I guess we should avoid Clinton, Obama, and McCain.
All have at least two of those qualities. Maybe all four qualities, with a little "spin".

:rofl:

Good article, though!
