What makes some bosses very uncomfortable, even threatened by subordinates who are
extremely intelligent and educated at a level that the former are not?
Perhaps they feel they should have more knowledge than anyone on their team and don't realize that in leadership having a great intellectual team to collaborate with is something to be proud of and reflects as much on them as it does their subordinates. Both should have something to offer that compliments the other. If they can't see that then their loyalty is not to the company or their team and only out for themselves.
I think some bosses feel challenged if they think someone is more capable, educated or better trained than they are to do their job. Sad really, because if they could see the positive, instead of the negative they would have a strong team!
Janice, what you have stated is true. However, the average boss wants to be THE PERSON. He/she does not want a subordinate who he/she deems is MORE than he/she is. He/she feels that this subordinate will STEAL the thunder so to speak.
You have already said the answer. An extremely intelligent and educated subordinate will have the potential to be a replacement for the boss and the boss' sense of insecurity only makes him uncomfortable and threatened.
