    Thanks Shawn for highlighting the video. I moderated a large group of sales leaders today. One of the many difficulties they highlighted was the negative impact when their boss behaves badly, e.g., pushing for unrealistic sales results solely to achieve their personal bonus targets. So, it’s not just mangers miss-treating staff.

    I’ve talked about the need for better conversations in organizations by moving away from problem focus conversations. Bad bosses thrive on problem focus.

    In the end, it’s a cultural issue – does the organization have a culture that, at worst nurtures bad bosses, or simply ignores them?

    If one is in a position to negotiate for a business unit, then chances are he is also in a position to hire and fire as well. Bad behavior can show up through one’s personal and positional needs in a working relationship as well as in client negotiations. That same bad boss may resort to your defenestration during client negotiations in order to show up as he wants to be perceived. Fear and pride are constant companions.
