Chefs are often branded as alpha animals and narcissists whose alleged strengths quickly turn into interpersonal weaknesses. These characteristics also have their constructive sides, which are far too rarely considered.

Socially incompetent alpha males?

Overview

Again and again one reads in the media of psychopathic bosses exploiting their employees socially incompetent. This stigmatization is persistently persistent and corresponds to popular popular opinion.

For example, the achievements of Kate Ludeman and Eddie Erlandson have achieved short popularity. They introduce four alpha-man types. First, the strengths are highlighted and then explained when the strengths turn into destructive weaknesses.

Constructive instead of destructive

Overview

In addition, the authors consider what the alphas themselves and their partners can do to transform the destructive into the constructive, or to avoid the counterproductive moment of a force.

However, alpha managers also appear to be socially less competent and need non-alphas as tutors to correct them. This assessment, however, is intended too black and white and falls short.

Study on narcissism among business founders

Overview

That narcissism also has areas of activity in which it can be beneficial is shown by an interdisciplinary study by the University of Hohenheim, the Reutlingen University of Applied Sciences and the German Police College in Münster.

The influence of the so-called "dark triad of the personality" was examined in the phase before the company was founded. Narcissists, referred to as "self-loving personalities," performed well insofar as they apparently had a higher propensity to them, Company to found.

Self-love good for business success?

Overview

And then this quote follows: "High-quality business plans, on the other hand, are more from the pen of Machiavellists." Good to know.

Incidentally, the study received the Best Paper Award at the annual conference of the British Academy of Management (BAM) and thus received international recognition.

Narzissmuss and power striving help in starting a business?

Overview

Their main result is: "Narcissism, power struggles, and co seem to help start-ups, at least in the initial stages of success."

In fact, in the past, the interdependencies of narcissism and leadership (success) have been and are being researched time and again by psychologists.

Management as a virus?

Overview

A look into the media also shows that the negative attributions currently predominate among managers. Managers are therefore either walking incompetence, idiocy, narcissism, machiavellism, psychopathy.

But that's not the summit! The latest cry transforms leaders into a virus: Leading people - according to the naïve monocausal logic - make employees sick:

Chefs with nurse function

Overview

"Boss rivets go to the heart"; or - the seemingly more constructive version of the same message: "Burnout: supervisors can reduce mental stress on employees".

The ideal picture of the manager looks different. Leaders are required to be caring by "socially supporting their employees at work". That, however, they have to do in the long run:

Everything, just not holistic

Overview

"If the superiors stop or interrupt their support, however, the burnout-related staff shortages quickly return to their previous levels."

In February 2011, a survey concludes, "bosses fail to recognize or respond adequately to their employees' mental demands."

Boss failure all along the line?

Overview

While "executives play a key role," they fail in the "holistic risk assessment."

And, as discussed above, the term holistic is understood to mean: body, soul, mind, social cohesion, and other context variables, such as scope for action and environment (industry, enterprise, workplace, infrastructure).

Chefs with psychostigma

Overview

It turns out: Apart from the obvious devaluations, negative evaluations are characterized by the fact that they arise from a psychological discourse.

In this respect, executives are already psychologized themselves and thus often recipients of insufficiently accurate psychological labels.

What managers should do

Overview

Surprisingly, however, this is: the specific labeling that has just been discussed does not exculpate the leaders.

Rather - and this is the amazing determination - they should in turn think psychologically and lead their staff to psychological knowledge - "holistic", of course. One should not be surprised that young people often have no interest in leadership roles.

    Finally a text on the topic of management, which deserves to be read. The truth often looks different than it is generally portrayed.

  2. Martin

    It is a constant nuisance that people often scold managers for being in the media. The more I am thrilled by such contributions.

  3. Peggie Dwelle

    Oh the poor, poor bosses. You forgive, if you have to laugh as a worker in this post times. Most of the bosses I experienced were the biggest movers themselves.

  4. Mark G.

    This is a really important topic - I myself am a manager in a medium-sized company and feel very stressed by the high demands as well as the negative media opinion about managers. Therefore, I am pleased about such contributions!
