Inability to organize detail, thus admitting inability to do the job effectively



Unwillingness to do what they would ask another to do, when occasion demands


Expectation of pay for what they know instead of what they do


Fear of competition from others, trying to hold people below you rather than build them up




The "I" syndrome claiming all the honors for the team Download PowerPoint presentation, pdf e-book achievements


Over-indulgence, destroying endurance and vitality


Disloyalty to colleagues, resulting in loss of respect


Emphasis on the 'authority of leadership', leading by instilling fear instead of encouraging


Emphasis of title instead of knowledge and expertise



Lack of understanding of the destructive effects of a negative environment


Lack of common sense, being heavenly minded and ultra positive, but no earthly good
