Editor's note
The search for Britain's worst 'boss idol' continues. How do you
become an inspirational leader like David Brent? What makes a
good 'bad boss'? How do you make an employee cringe when you
speak? Does it come naturally or can you learn how to be the
worst 'boss idol'? Is it essential to have a catchphrase to
become such a figurehead?

50% of Brits rated Simon Cowell as the the ideal manager in a
recent poll. The Brain Bath?! team was so alarmed by the results
of this survey that they have put together a top ten worst boss
idols list. Post a comment on this article and have your say.
