Cost of Leader (CL)= Salary and perks/CTC that has all the other bonus/perks, etcLosses due to Leadership= L COPL = 2+.2/3+.2= 2.2/3.2=.6875*100=68.75%The criteria are COPL is < 10%= Good10% to 20%= Alarming>20%= Dangerous For example, let us assume CL= 2 crL=.2 crTC= 3 crLNL=.2 cr COPL: Cost of Poor LeadershipAs we know, leadership is nothing but leading from the front to achieve the objectives, not pushing from the back as some so-called corporate leaders do. In this article, let’s discuss the cost of poor leadership. The consequences of poor leadership always carried forward too many years. Therefore, organizations need to be more careful in choosing a leader. Dear readers, before analyzing the COPL let’s brief about what is poor leadership. You might have seen many articles on Good leadership, excellent leadership so on and so forth.What is poor leadership?Poor leadership is defined as the kind of leadership style/intent/actions that are deviating the organization from the direction and path towards achieving the business goals/mission/visionPoor leadership as everyone knows is detrimental to the organization. If you find the following symptoms, then you can conclude that the organization is suffering from poor leadership.The organization is not able to achieve the target for more than three years continuouslyMore hierarchiesNo accountability among the leadership teamNo conviction about the business goalsCommunication breaks downNo integrityA recent survey in the UK says that more than one-third of UK employees are leaving the organization due to poor leadership £Though everyone talks about this there is no formula for calculating the cost of poor leadership. I have come across a story about writing off a big acquisition done earlier by the leadership of an organization. The amount of the acquisition was billions of dollars. It was a wrong decision by the management and they closed it silently. Like this there are many decisions made by the leadership that played havoc to the entire organization. Many of us know, CTC-Cost to Company, COPQ-Cost of Poor Quality, whereas we may not know the COPL-Cost of Poor Leadership. Through this article I am trying to find a way to calculate the COPL. I am not claiming that this is the only way of calculating the COPL, yet, this could be evolved to be a matured way of calculating the COPL in the future The disadvantage is that this person may be perceived as authoritarian by others Total Costs = TCLosses not due to Leadership= LNL II. The Manager:This type of leader is not leading from the front, rather they push from the back. They simply manage the status-quo. Highly conservative and not taking any risks. Tries to be amicable to all. These manager-leaders will succeed in a monopoly organization where the business orders are coming consistently without much effort by the leadership. In the current world these types of manager-leaders cannot survive as there are stiff competition prevails in the market. An organization that is aiming at growing faster should not have manager-leaders as they will spoil the organization’s culture.III. The ClerkThis is the worst type of leadership style. These clerk-leaders will only execute the orders. He will not make any big decisions nor will he take risks. The victims are the high performers who will suffer under this leadership as they may not get any rewards for their hard work, whereas the low performers and the coterie will have heydays under this leadership as they can simply survive without doing any work. Imagine, the destiny of any organization that has clerk-leader as their CEO.COPL applies to all the above leadership styles. Therefore, COPL will consider the parameters such as attrition also.Decision making is also a parameter in this COPL as a wrong decision is costly so as not making a timely decision also costly Author:The author of this article has vast experience in HR Process implementation and HR data analytics and was instrumental in implementing the PCMM in Top Tier organizations across the globe.Pazhanikumar RManaging Director,Izaaki ConsultingYou can send your feedback to [email protected] If the leadership is collective, then collect all the individual data together and arrive at COPLIt is better to find the COPL every three to five years as the leadership needs that much time to see the impact of their policies on revenue This COPL is a complex one and not so easy to calculate as there are multiple factors involved and it is a long-term exercise, a minimum of three years required to judge a leader. As we know, sometimes the policy enacted by the leader will fructify only after some years. Therefore, we need to be more cautious about this. However, if we do it then this can quantify the cost of the poor leadership and any decision taken based on this will be fact-based not opinion-based.Before moving to the calculation of COPL, let’s look into three types of Leaders1. The King2. The Manager3. The clerk I. The King:This is a leadership category where the person will control every aspect of the organization. He/she is a visionary. The gain/loss may be very high. He/she has full authority of all the facts and figures of the organization in his/her fingertips. They know the details of every employee of their needs and capabilities. This type of leadership will be successful if most of the people in the organization support them. There should be more authorities given to this leader by the Board of DirectorsThe advantages of this leadership are1. Quick Decision making2. Trustable3. Leading from the front Now let’s look at the factors that impact the COPL below:The cost incurred due to wrong policy/conceptsThe cost incurred due to not implementing the right policy/processThe cost incurred due to not implementing the AutomationThe cost incurred due to attrition because of the policy/process/style of leadershipThe cost incurred due to communication failureThe cost incurred due to the delay in making a decisionThese costs can be collected in terms of money/effort. All these above parameters can be called as LCollect the data of total costs in the respective unit/SBU/vertical/enterprise depends upon the COPL for the position that is held by the individualCOPL = (Cost of Leader+ Losses due to the leader)/ Total costs+ Other losses not due to Leadership) *100 I am concluding this article by saying that this is on the conceptual level and is not tested with organizations. Therefore, please be cautious while applying this. I tried my best to bring leadership activities under the financial scanner. How far this will be useful, only the time will tellThank you for reading, please give your feedback /comments in the respective section here COPL = (CL+L)/(TC+LNL) * 100 £ : https://www.onrec.com/news/statistics-and-trends/more-than-third-of-uk-employees-want-to-leave-their-company-immediately

St. Thomas University School of Law recently welcomed more than 100 judges, attorneys, legal scholars, alumni, and friends for an event honoring Judge William M. Hoeveler and announcing the selection of St. Thomas University School of Law as the repository for Judge Hoeveler’s judicial papers.The St. Thomas University School of Law’s Alex Hanna Legal Information Center will serve as home to Judge Hoeveler’s case-related documents and correspondence, distinct from the official court record of his cases. The collection includes his personal anecdotes, exchanges with attorneys, and notes that may serve to document Judge Hoeveler’s career and give insight into the process of his judicial deliberation through many of the cases over which he presided. These documents can bring judicial history alive for law students, legal scholars, and the general public in a way that textbooks may not. In addition to the papers, the law school will house memorabilia that include courtroom sketches from the Manuel Noriega trial, the Pontifical Medal Benemerenti bestowed by Pope John Paul II, personal photographs, and even Judge Hoeveler’s famous briefcase.St. Thomas University President Monsignor Franklyn Casale expressed his gratitude that the law library was selected as the repository and spoke of his admiration for Judge Hoeveler and the impact he has had on the law locally and nationally. He noted the papers will join those of the late U.S. District Judge C. Clyde Atkins, which also are housed at St. Thomas University.Dean Alfredo García delivered remarks that highlighted Judge Hoeveler as a “legal giant in the South Florida community who was fair, humble, patient, joyful, deeply religious, and courageous.”García shared details of how Judge Hoeveler conducted himself in what was probably the most high-profile case over which he presided: the Manuel Noriega trial.“The Noriega trial is the prism through which we can view the career of the most respected jurist in South Florida,” Dean García said. “The case was complex. There were more than 250 pretrial pleadings, motions, responses, memorandums, and court orders. The trial lasted a few months. Amidst all of this, Judge Hoeveler demonstrated remarkable patience, legal understanding, and, above all, fairness.”García noted that after the trial, and during Noriega’s sentencing speech, Noriega rebuked the U.S. government but praised Judge Hoeveler.Senior U.S. District Judge Donald Graham presented a brass dedication plaque to Judge Hoeveler on behalf of the judges of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida and members of the bar.Hoeveler was born in France in 1922 and attended high school in Havertown, Pennsylvania. He began college at Temple University but left when he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II. After the war, he enrolled at Bucknell University. He graduated from Harvard Law School with an LL.B. in 1950 and entered private practice in Miami. He was nominated to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida in 1977 by President Jimmy Carter and assumed senior status in 1991. In addition to the high-profile trial of Noriega, he presided over many of the hearings in the Elián González case. He retired in 2014.
