The Include Everyone Boss

This boss has endless meetings knowing the desired outcome, yet asks for everyone's input anyway. This boss will listen, nod, and then when the team is done talking, he or she proceeds with, "Thank you for your ideas. Now here is what we're going to do." Eventually, team members get frustrated at the time wasted and stop contributing since they know their voices won't really be heard and their creative efforts will be ignored.
