The internet is full of examples of a failure to lead and the things that a leader should avoid. Inside our own lives, we’ve all experienced horrible leaders and noted: “I’m never going to do that”.

This will be a growing list on mwah., but experience tells us that the big five avoidable mistakes made by leaders are:

  1. Being a leadership vacuum
  2. Procrastinating
  3. Allowing stress to pile up in the team
  4. Allowing the team to work too hard
  5. Forgetting that you’re only human!

All five of these mistakes are very common, but they are also all very avoidable.
