There have recently been several posts on other threads regarding the maangement style of Maurice Ghysels. As noted by Carl, a "toxic leader" is defined as a person who demonstrates, "a condescending/glib attitude, poor self-control, physical and/or psychological bullying, discriminatory attitudes, aggressive narcissism, glibness/superficial charm, a grandiose sense of self-worth, a lack of empathy, and a failure to accept responsibility for own actions."
Toxic leaders first charm but then manipulate, mistreat, undermine and ultimately leave their followers worse off than they found them. The School Board needs to take a close, honest look at the superintendent by seeking input from parents and staff.
