Bad Leadership

I’m not sure I know how to be a great leader, but I can tell you how to be a terrible one:

When your state has declared a disaster emergency for snow, you should tell your subordinates that they better come to work tomorrow for their routine clinic patients (who may or may not show up), and declare that you’re going to be home playing in the snow with your kids. And when your staff expresses doubts about the feasibility of making it to work in 2 feet of snow and 60 mph winds, tell them they are not team players.

And then leave an hour early, to get a head start on those snowmen.

[Bonus points for blaming a staff member for poor documentation in a note that was written more than two years before she started working there.]
