Post Be mean to your subordinates! Study says Brutal bosses are the best for biz!!

Should we all become raging maniacs at office now?

Brutal bosses are the best for biz

Ruthless bosses who scream at their staff, trample on their feelings and set impossible standards have the greatest chance of being successful. "The Great Intimidators" are the best bosses in business, says a leading American business professor in a highly controversial article.

His findings fly in the face of the accepted wisdom that a boss who is sensitive to his staff gets the best results from them. Not so, according to Roderick Kramer from the respected Stanford Graduate School of Business in California.

The real winners are the bosses with "porcupine power" who are rough, loud and in your face".


The professor says their approach to business can be summed up as: "Time is short, the stakes are high and the measures required are draconian." His findings into the S-factor . the scare factor . involved extensive research into what made some of America"s top executives and politicians so successful. He says that there are few things that they will not do to be the best, although few would win a place at charm school.

One of the top tactics is to be angry and let everybody know that that is how you are feeling, he says in his article, "The Great Intimidators", published in the "Harvard Business Review".

"A bad temper is a very powerful political tool because most people don't like confrontation," he says.

"People will think twice before confronting you if you"ve got a reputation for being willing to scorch a little earth." Great Intimidators are good at screaming at staff, taunting them, swearing at them and even becoming physically threatening.

This approach persecutes staff who “end up spending a lot of time huddled around the cooler trying to figure out whether they are in or out". After this, they "go and sit in their offices and dream up ways of pleasing the boss".

Re: Be mean to your subordinates! Study says Brutal bosses are the best for biz!!

I don't think its the right thing to do.

A softspoken & polite boss is one I will work for. Loud-spoken, rude bosses will only instill a sense fear in employees who will yield results, but will also be quite unhappy and bitch behind the boss's back (which we anyway do ). I would rather quit and take up another job if my boss turns out to be mean and loud-spoken. I think, many employees would take up another job if a boss is mean & brutal.

My first boss was "Mr. Godbole" and he was really polite and soft-spoken, but that did not mean we took any advantage of that and not complete our work on time. In fact, such bosses are more approachable than the mean ones and employees can interact freely and give more feedback about working conditions, problems and suggestions for improving business which would ultimately go a long way in building a good relationship and be beneficial to the business too.

What kind of theory do you expect from a prof at a university in Gaylifornia
