Why bossy bosses are bad for company

Melbourne, Oct 10 : A new study has revealed that people in groups with bossy leaders are less likely to share their ideas in meetings, which has adverse affects on company.

According to MarketWatch, by watching several meetings as part of the study, researchers found that strong bosses failed to get input from others in the room, as they end up dominating the conversation, the Courier Mail reported.

Leigh Plunkett Tost, an assistant professor of management and organisation at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business, said that these types of performance problems are most likely to emerge when leaders let their power go to their heads.

Researches said that the study suggested that companies need to promote equal participation by restructuring teams and leaders need to encourage input.

The study is published in Academy of Management Journal.
