Researchers have studied managerial derailment — or the dark side of leadership — for many years. The key derailment characteristics of bad managers are well documented and fall into three broad behavioral categories:

  • “moving away behaviors,” which create distance from others through hyper-emotionality, diminished communication, and skepticism that erodes trust;
  • “moving against behaviors,” which overpower and manipulate people while aggrandizing the self;
  • “moving toward behaviors,” which include being ingratiating, overly conforming, and reluctant to take chances or stand up for one’s team.

Cognitive culture vs emotional culture
  • When people talk about corporate culture, they’re typically referring to cognitive culture: the shared intellectual values, norms, artifacts, and assumptions that serve as a guide for the group to thrive.
  • The other critical part is what we call the group’s emotional culture: the shared affective values, norms, artifacts, and assumptions that govern which emotions people have and express at work and which ones they are better off suppressing.

Cognitive culture is often conveyed verbally, whereas emotional culture tends to be conveyed through nonverbal cues.
