Most British bosses do not exhibit the key skills of good communication, integrity and the ability to motivate, a survey of just over 1,000 UK employees by executive recruitment business Korn/Ferry Whitehead Mann has found.
Being a good communicator was the quality most commonly associated with an effective leader among the survey sample, but just 21 per cent felt their boss had this skill. A mere 13 per cent felt their boss was a good motivator, although this was seen as the second most important attribute for effective management.
Only 14 per cent of those asked felt their company head had integrity and 9 per cent felt their boss was inspirational.
There was an acceptance that the portrayal of business leaders on television and in films did not help raise their image among staff with 29 per cent saying that the reputation of bosses was diminished by their media portrayal compared with just 10 per cent who said it enhances it.
