Are you a bad boss?

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Management Training,Workplace Communication

Too often, well-meaning bosses put obstacles in front of their employees. If you see yourself doing any of the following, you’re the obstacle:
  • You don’t give employees a clear and compelling company direction. When people align themselves with the company’s goals, they are free to invent, to improvise, to innovate, to inspire each other.

  • You say important things only once. If the message is important, it is worth repeating. Repeat until you are sick of hearing yourself say it.

  • You don’t hold employees accountable. Start by doing all the things you said you would do.

  • You concentrate on trying to improve employees’ shortcomings. Instead, figure out what employees are really good at and train them to be brilliant.
—Adapted from “How to Be a Bad Boss,” Paul Lemberg, Soft-Letter.
