10 Signs You're A Terrible Leader

10 Signs You're A Terrible Leader
Everyone has a learning curve when taking on a new leadership position. Being the head honcho isn't easy, and the leadership skills required to do the job aren't always innate—it can take time to grow into the role.

Unfortunately, there are times when a manager or a boss is simply a bad leader. Maybe they had bad mentors, or they've picked up contradictory habits. Maybe they haven't had the necessary experience to understand their vital role and how best to accomplish it. Whatever the case, recognizing that your leadership skills need some serious work is the first step toward making changes and improving.

Here are 10 signs that you're probably a terrible leader, as well as some steps you can begin taking to fix them.

1. You lack empathy: Caring for others and showing compassion toward employees only makes you weak, right? Wrong! Newsflash: No matter how high up the ranks you climb, you will always be human, and so will everyone else around you.

Great leaders understand the importance of empathy. Don't be afraid to show your softer side. Have a sense of humor and show warmth to those around you. Practice relating to others and try to see situations from someone else's perspective. When you take time to recognize others, those around you will feel appreciated.
