Lack of trust
These are trademarks (just a few) of an absentee leader.
Research published in German psychology journal Zeitschrift für Psychologie:
The effect of absentee leadership is far worse than any other type.
You think this ‘leader’ was bad before?
The impact is much stronger in the current (remote work) environment.
That’s when bad leadership becomes destructive.
As employee you are looking for feedback.
You want to know where/how to best direct your efforts.
But the leader is absent.
You have no guidance.
Stress and poor performance.
This leader (in title only) has a negative impact throughout the organization.
Heavy price to pay.
For the employees, the organization and its customers.
Why do they get away with it?
Because other (bad) leaders have a more glaring incompetence.
So we prioritize their removal.
And we let the quiet, incompetent (absentee) leader to continue to slow-kill the productivity and success of the organization
