Yıkıcı Liderlik: “Cehennemden Gelen Yöneticiler”, Nasıl Onlardan Birisi Olunmaz?
Destructive Leadership: “Boss From Hell”, How Not To Be One?

Can BİÇER [1]


Liderler çalışanları motive edip ilham kaynağı olurken, aynı zamanda onların farklılıklarını dengelerken örgütsel hedefler için aralarında sinerji oluştururlar. Öte yandan, yöneticiler ve çalışanlar gelir giderler ama geriye, yıkıcı-zehirli liderliğin olumsuz sonuçları örgütte varlığını sürdürür. Yıkıcı liderlik, işler örgütün kuralları dâhilinde, zamanında yapıldığında, örgüt huzurlu olarak gözlemlendiğinde ve değerlendirildiğinde, olumlu olarak düşünülebilir. Ancak, bireyler iş yerinde kendilerine kötü davranıldığı konusunda hem fikir olduklarında, kendilerini diken üstünde hissetmeye başlarlar ve örgütte kendilerini güvensiz ve stresli olarak hissederler. Çalışanlar yöneticilerinden veya iş arkadaşları tarafından kabul edilemez, haksız ve saygısız davranışlar gördüklerini anladıklarında, o zaman kendilerini değersiz ve kendilerine saygı gösterilmediğini düşünürler ve işten ayrılmayı düşünürler ve bu da işgücü devrine yol açar. Böylelikle, örgütler itibarını kaybetme, küskün olarak ayrılan çalışanlarla birlikte kaybolan iş bağlantıları gibi gizli büyük zararlara yol açan olumsuz sonuçlara yol açabilir. Bu çalışmada, yıkıcı liderlik tanımlanarak literatür araştırmasıyla açıklamalar desteklenecek ve yıkıcı liderliğe karşı alınacak tedbirler açıklanarak, detaylı çözüm önerilerinde bulunulacaktır.

Leaders should motivate and inspire employees at the same time mitigating their discrepancies and creating synergy for the organizational goals. On the other hand, bosses and employees come and go but the negative effects of the destructive- toxic leadership will still remain in the organization. Destructive leadership might be regarded as positive if the organization is observed and evaluated as peaceful when all the works done in the nick of time, associated with the rules and the regulations of the organization. However, if the individuals reach a consensus that they are mistreated at workplace, they begin to sit on pins and needles and feel themselves unsecure and stressed. When the employees realize that they experience unacceptable, unfair and uncivil behaviors from the leaders or coworkers, then they feel worthless and disrespected, and begin to think about leaving and it leads to employee turnover. So, such negative outcomes may cause huge hidden costs like the organization will lose its reputation and its business contacts because of the leaving, offended employees. In this conceptual study, toxic, destructive leadership will be identified in detail through a literature overview and its consequences and countermeasures will be explained and major solutions will be offered.
