These are the traits the worst managers have in common

We hear all the time about what great leaders should be like.

  • How they’re empathetic
  • How they’re humble, yet driven
  • How they’re transparent, ethical, inspiring

But what about the traits that make for poor leaders? I’ve worked for a variety of editors and CEOs over my career — for leaders who were inspiring and for leaders who were cancerous — and in reflecting on what sort of leader I want to be, now, I draw from those negative experiences just as often as I do the positive ones.

Acting like a psychopath is great for male CEOs, not so much for women

With all the corporate scandals of late, chances are you've heard the statement that one in five CEOs is a "psychopath." But a new study in the Journal of Applied Psychology concludes that figure may be overblown. Corporate leaders are only slightly more likely to have strong psychopathic tendencies than other groups—and CEOs that exhibit those tendencies are less likely to be viewed as effective leaders.

More significantly, there is a pronounced gender gap between how men and women are perceived when they exhibit psychopathic traits. It can give men a slight advantage when moving up through management ranks. But women are perceived much more negatively because those traits run counter to social gender norms, and thus women don't reap the same benefits in terms of career advancement.

A new study shows there could be other benefits to eating a protein-rich snack at night—like jumpstarting your metabolism, building muscle tone, and boosting overall health.
