Anti-leadership

Anti-Leadership is a term used in the Ideal leadership model to describe an excess or deficiency of leadership capital elements.

Leadership Capital is one aspect of the Ideal Leadership model, which is defined as the six competencies that constitute the leader's ability to direct an organization forward in a positive direction. These competencies are: wisdom, courage, trust, voice, vision and values.

Leadership conditions are the second component of the Ideal Leadership model. Conditions are the elements that give a leader the opportunity to lead. Basically, a person must be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right things, with the right people.

According to the model, even good leaders can at times, display anti-leadership tendencies. For example, a leader who develops his vision and focuses all his energy on it, refusing to heed counsel from others or to develop other competencies such as trust or voice, risks crossing from having a clear vision to obsession (excess). On the other hand, a leader who fails to develop a clear vision risks operating in blindness (deficiency).

An excess or deficiency within any competency is anti-leadership. An imbalance among the competencies (for example exhibiting courage while lacking wisdom, values, etc.) can also lead to anti-leadership.

A leader's current and potential leadership capability, as well as his or her risk for displaying anti-leadership traits, can be measured by a leadership assessment utilizing leadershipmetrics.

Anti-Leadership is also a term used by political scientist Wildvasky in his grid-group theory of leadership.
