Several behaviours typify power-hungry bosses. They may blame others for their mistakes; take credit for other people’s ideas; or belittle those who do not share their views. But can anything be done about these individuals?


This article by Craig Donaldson, writing for UNSW Newsroom, makes the following points:
  • Such leaders feel they need to maintain total power and control.
  • Not only does this behaviour disenfranchise workers, but it can also have significant and far-reaching consequences for organisations.
  • A recent UNSW research paper found that such behaviour is quite common.
  • Many such bosses are narcissists.
