Some managers turn every problem into a three-alarm fire, which can be stressful and ineffective. How do you know if a manager (or you) is a “management pyromaniac”? Fortune Small Business offers this quiz:

  • Are most of your e-mails labeled “urgent”?
  • Have you left more than three voice mails to a person on the same issue in one hour?
  • Do you make employees stay late on issues that just came up as they were leaving for the day?
  • Do co-workers screen your calls?

Any “yes” answers could signal a problem.
