Destructive leadership in teaching
What is it about?
Much research on higher education teaching focus on the positive side to teaching. However, teaching is not always positive. In this study, I focus on the darker side to teaching via a leadership lens. Using 13 interviews, I found that higher education instructors can be callous in their communications, chaotic and careless, and irresponsible. These destructive behaviors are associated with students' reactions.
Why is it important?
Theoretically, this study (a) contributes the concept of destructive instructor-leadership, (b) extends previous organizational behavior research on destructive leadership by offering a multidimensional concept, and (c) examines the reactions of two manifestations of destructive leadership.
