When it comes to the workplace, there are few things as tough as having a bad boss. Whether it's a lack of organization, a gruff attitude or an inability to empathize with staff, working for someone with poor leadership skills can sap enthusiasm and productivity.

But the negative effects don't stop there. A new study finds that bad bosses can affect workers' personal lives, too, since many people don't simply switch off the workday when they walk out the door each night, according to research by the Université Francois Rabelais in Tours, France.
