Some say there are two types of bosses: those who care about the company and the people who work there, and those who care about their own power and egos. Those who care about the company and bring out the strengths of their people create more success. But those who care about power and their egos more than their companies prove to struggle getting results, and 60% of managers are bad at their jobs says Business Insider reporter Drake Baer in the article “Narcissism and other reasons why more than 60% of managers are bad at their jobs.”
Narcissistic bosses manage people’s impressions of them and often rise to power because they’ve manipulated others all while displaying confidence and charisma. “Leaders who are too narcissistic are convinced they are right, sensitive to criticism, and may ignore valid warnings. Because they lack empathy, they are not sensitive to the impact of their behavior on others, and they may act out. Steve Jobs was known to berate and publicly humiliate subordinates,” says Claremont McKenna College leadership professor Ronald E. Riggio.
