Rise above soft boss

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Management Training

Q My boss’ standards are way too low. She’s lax and far too accepting of average work—by myself and other managers. I find myself doing just enough to get by. Should I care?

A If you have an iota of ambition, yes, you should care. The status quo will bury you in middle-management oblivion. You’ll lose your edge, get lazy and settle for mediocrity. One day, a more demanding boss will replace the current one and set higher expectations. By then, you may lack the drive and ability to deliver. Avoid this grim scenario by building relationships with hard-charging leaders. Expand your network and make cutting-edge contributions.
