Leadership | Employees reveal their most badly behaved bosses

Employees reveal their most badly behaved bosses

The role of a company boss comes with a wealth of responsibility. Bosses must effectively lead teams, supervise employee progression and achieve set  goals to keep the business cogs turning. Good managers are able to strike a healthy balance between inspiring and empowering employees to perform at their best and achieve set goals aligned with the company’s overarching vision.

However, it seems that not all managers adopt these professional traits. Twitter user @PhilipNByrne started an online thread asking users to detail their worst experiences with bosses. He tweeted that, in his adult career, one boss had created a work WhatsApp group for "haranguing staff" over website performance, often until the early hours.
