Leadership Lessons from Science Fiction

I found two great original blog posts about bosses and leadership that I want to share with you:

The first is The 7 Types of Bad Bosses According To Star Trek (And How To Survive Them) by Charlie Jane Anders.

Charlie discusses 7 bosses: The Bully, The Father Figure, The Politician, The Cold Fish, The Blamer, The Queen Bee, and The Hot-tub Boss. Interesting take on the Star Trek universe being applied to corporate leadership stereotypes. We can all relate and have probably encountered one of these bosses sometime in our careers.

The second post is Seven Habits of Highly Effective Spaceship Captains by Annalee Newitz.

Annalee uses several spaceship captains from the scifi universe to teach leadership skills. They may be fictional, but they have skills that translate into the real world.
