Managers are only too likely to be abused in Germany - because of excessive salaries, dismissals and wrong decisions. The most recent example is the expulsion of VWChef Matthias Müller. But are they really that bad or are you just talking bad?

So is boss bashing

Overview

The media response to the expulsion of Matthias Müller at VW was great. One did not have to cry a tear for him, wrote the Bildzeitung. And the Süddeutsche reported his creeping departure. But are bosses and managers really as bad as their reputation? I would like to encourage thinking with this article.

One thing is certain: boss bashing has a long tradition in Germany. Do you remember the "studs in pinstripes"? That was a prelude or climax, depending on your point of view, the first phase of boss bashing. At that time executives were only considered incompetent. Even today. But today, this view of things has intensified.

Manager in the crossfire

Overview

Managers and bosses are currently in the midst of the media, especially in crossfire when mass redundancies or other difficult decisions. "If the boss is an idiot", there is a need to identify a culprit.

And that is quickly found: "Many superiors are an imposition"; regrettably, professionals become leaders, do not learn to lead, successfully use "elbows, selfishness, and lust for power," lack the "qualities needed for career advancement," and can not be either "sovereign personality" or "ideal boss." ,

The boss as an idiot?

Overview

There are bosses idiots, here they are "stupid": Tobias Schormann ironic "the stupid executive," which is "more sensitive" than you think, and gives the employees tips on how to avoid "eight gross mistakes in dealing with the boss" can.

But it goes even further: scornful insulting is no longer enough. Psychology must come from. Managers are not only stupid but also mentally disturbed or ill. For example: "Narcissistic people often become leaders without being particularly suitable." And: "Insanity types. Psychopath ". Psychopathologization is "in".

Executives - caught in the Psycho Trap

Overview

Apparently, it is chic to cast leaders with psychological labels and turn them into neurotic, psychotic, morbid spinners that do mischief.

This is complemented by the suggestion that leaders almost necessarily suffer from a narcissistic disorder - and employees and Company suffering from it: "I, the genius" as a formula for "overconfidence" and this in turn as "occupational disease no. 1 at managers".

Chefs: Alpha animals in social Darwinism?

Overview

Insulting and psychopathologizing is not enough. The insult is added: Leading are often referred to as alpha animals - often accompanied by figures depicting monkeys (gorillas, chimpanzees). Enter the keyword into the search engine, which results in thousands of hits.

Among the offenders favorites include business people, footballers, actors, artists, politicians. A blog on the subject covers a few tens of pages and sheds light on how and where human alpha animals are seen as unavoidable, helpful, necessary, or as a social Darwinist outcome of fighting, as embarrassing, redundant, destructive, damaging, and preventing.

Narcissism can also be constructive

Overview

The labels Daffodil and Alpha-Animal are used in their abusive meaning. Scientific research, however, shows that both narcissism and alpha-animal aspects have constructive sides.

In order to discover these, however, one has to look at two things: the leadership context and the thrust direction. Once they expose the company and its success (and not employees), certain readiness, preferences, and abilities of both personality types or traits are welcome. Pay attention to that!
