Most employees have had experience with a bad boss.
A new survey by LinkedIn has pinpointed the traits bad bosses exhibit, lead to poor performance from employees and ultimately make some employees quit their jobs.
Nearly 3,000 individuals participated in the survey, which found more than 35 percent of professionals quit their jobs over a bad boss and another 15 percent were strongly considering it.
Here were the top complaints from employees who said they had bad bosses.
1. Bosses had expectation that were not clear or frequently changed.
2. Bosses who micromanaged
3. Bosses who were not involved
4. Bosses who did not foster professional development.
These were the top qualities that led 36 percent of employees to leave their job.
LinkedIn’s leadership experts say while some of these traits can be frustrating, employees can try to be proactive. They recommend if your manager does not provide clear expectations, ask for clarification.
