The Courier-Mail - Career One - - Executives -

FIRST-time lead­ers can eas­ily avoid be­ing a bad boss and gain their work­ers’ sup­port rather than have staff ha­tred de­velop in their first few weeks.

Re­cruiter Hays says new lead­ers can eas­ily slip un­con­sciously into poor be­hav­iours with­out re­al­is­ing it or are too quick to fol­low the ex­am­ple of oth­ers.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Nick Deli­gian­nis says most lead­ers want to be­come a re­spected and suc­cess­ful boss.

“Some­times people are so keen to prove their lead­er­ship skills and make a dif­fer­ence they for­get to stop and think,” he says. “This leads to poor lead­er­ship, which im­pacts their team and leads to ris­ing turnover. It also has a neg­a­tive im­pact on their ca­reer prospects.”
