Abrasive leaders rub people the wrong way. Commonly referred to as bully bosses their destructive management styles erode motivation in coworkers and disrupt organizational functioning. In today’s highly competitive business environment, companies cannot afford the costs of disruption caused by abrasive executives and professionals (such as attorneys and physicians). These costs include attrition of valued employees, hostile environment/harassment lawsuits, and retaliatory responses such as sabotage and workplace violence. Mediators are often called upon to mediate conflicts that are symptomatic of underlying abrasive management styles. Specialists in the field of coaching abrasive leaders, Laura Crawshaw, Ph.D. and Debra Healy, M.A. of The Boss Whispering Institute will discuss what drives leaders to engage in destructive interpersonal behavior at work, and what would be helpful to understand in order to reduce suffering in the workplace caused by abrasive leaders.
