Liverpool is home to some of Britain's worst bosses

NEW data from the UK's leading independent job site, CV Library, has found that 86.4% of workers in Liverpool have had a bad leader, the 2nd highest of any other City in the UK.

The survey, which asked 1,200 UK workers about their experiences of leadership in the workplace, found that some of the worst traits of bad bosses in Liverpool included:- being unprofessional (52.6%), poor communication skills (38.6%), favouring certain employees (36.8%), having unclear expectations (26.3%) and thinking they're better than everyone else (23.7%). Other key findings from the research include:-

A staggering 93.2% think that strong leadership is important in the workplace.

…with 77.3% stating that they enjoy following a leader.

BUT, bad leadership can cause employees to become de-motivated, according to 30.8% of workers in Liverpool.

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV Library , comments on the findings:- "Bad management is often cited as the top reasons for employees becoming stressed at work or worse still, leaving organisations altogether, so it's no surprise that our findings highlight some of the repercussions that poor leadership can bring about. Workers want to feel supported in their day to day job, and often depend on a strong leader to look up to, approach if things get tough and rely on for help on a daily basis. Organisations across the City that don't promote best practice when it comes to leadership will inevitably bear the brunt when it comes to talent retention."

According to the study, a whopping 72.7% of employees living in Liverpool believe that they'd make a good leader, with the key reasons behind this including:- because they're approachable (28.1%), are confident (21.8%), are good at communicating (15.6%) and are a good motivator (12.5%).

Biggins continues:- "Workers in Liverpool clearly understand some of the key attributes that are needed to be an excellent leader, having experienced firsthand some of the best and worst traits that bosses possess. Finding great leaders can be hard, and local businesses should look to develop employees that demonstrate the passion, drive and behaviour that is needed to drive organisations forward in 2017 and beyond."

The research found that the best leadership qualities were: confidence (52.3%), open mindedness (40.9%), honesty (36.4%), positivity (31.8%), passion (29.5%), motivational (27.3%), trustworthiness (20.5%).
