Responses to last week's column

Last week we asked,

Have you ever worked for an idiot?

100% of the respondents said YES!

Then we asked, "Check all that you think apply to the definition of an idiot boss..."

33% Clueless

22% Self-centered

56% Lacking in primary skills for the job (managerial, technical, etc.)

11% Inattentive

33% Insensitive

11% Other

Then we asked, "How have you dealt with the situation?"

This week's quiz is here.

0%  "Kept my head down", hoped they would move on

0%   Trained them

22% Called them out

56%  Left the department or the company

11% Other

11% Not answered

A choice comment:

I was in the military so I had very limited options (he was the squadron commander). The system in this case worked though. We failed an operational readiness inspection and he was demoted to a windowless office desk job.


Want to get a jump on the surveys? Follow me on twitter, where they are posted early. You can do this here. (note: all respondents are confidential; the software is programmed in such a way that neither we nor anyone else can determine who responded)


Want to be heard on other subjects? Be sure to watch for "Paperitalo Second Tuesday Surveys."
