How many times have you seen employees get promoted simply because they do their job? Job titles are too often awarded strictly based on numbers and tangible results rather than leadership capabilities. That’s why Glenn Llopis, author of The Innovation Mentality, claims in this video that more than 25 percent of people in leadership roles shouldn’t be leading.

According to him, leaders are generally unqualified for their position if they:

  • Lack influence beyond their job description in order to maximize growth
  • Do not embrace diversity of thought or keep an open mind
  • Fail to leverage collaborative relationships to their advantage
  • Lack wisdom and have trouble converting knowledge into strategy
