  Bad Use of Leadership
Jozelle Steenkamp, Director, South Africa, Member
  We would like to not use the two ideas together... Bad and leadership. "We" being society see leadership as being positive, guiding and supportive where bad is negative.
There is an old saying "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" and I think that is when leadership becomes negative.
In a corporate environment bad leadership is seen in the figures or financials. I believe it is the decision making and not the leadership style that is bad. If a person is in a position of power, which leaders are seen to be, there was something he or she did well before getting to that position which was his or her leadership skills or style, making bad decisions in that position does not reflect on the style of leadership rather the misuse of trust or power.
So a certain way of leadership, in my opinion, is not bad it; is the way it is used that is bad...
