Sydney, Feb 22 ANI | 8 months ago

A new study shows that most workers feel they should be boss, as 75 percent of employees believe their workplace suffers from poor leadership and needs better management.


And, perhaps unsurprisingly, most of us think we could do a better job: three-quarters of the workforce believes it has the know-how to be a good leader.

The findings are the result of a survey into management by the Centre for Workplace Leadership, a federally funded research centre at Melbourne University to be opened by Employment Minister Eric Abetz, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The survey of 2300 workers was carried out by the university's researchers from the first week of February.

It found that, while there were concerns about the quality of management, over half the nation's workforce had a leader in their workplace they could look up to.

The situation was worse, though, in the managerial ranks, with only 35 percent of bosses in senior or middle management roles saying they had someone to model themselves on at work.

Centre for Workplace Leadership director Peter Gahan said it appeared Australian workers ''lack faith in their leaders''.

He said leadership roles in Australian workplaces were often the ''neglected ingredient'' in productivity.
