There's an incongruity between time and money devoted to leadership development and the number of articles about bad bosses. Maybe its' time to re-visit the definition of "bad."
People do that for which they are rewarded. Period.
We all pay attention to what our bosses pay attention to. When people get rewarded solely for behavior that produces profit, then that behavior becomes acceptable--even if it's bad. You can send those folks to ten different leadership development programs that model respectful practices. But you're still going to get the behavior that is actually rewarded.
