Make sure you’re not one of these:
Rationalizers see everything in cold, hard, logical terms. That’s fine if you’re a scientist, but if you manage people, you’ll need to leaven sweet reason with empathy.
Example: If you dismiss “crazy” ideas in favor of safer, more reasonable proposals, you’ll squelch creativity.
Blamers treat workers like preschoolers. They scold employees at every turn in a kindly but preachy tone, earning the reputation of faultfinder.
Example: If you notice a technician’s minor oversight, let it slide or mention it in passing. Don’t blame employees too early or too often.
Wafflers care more about being liked than showing . Don’t feel you must bend your opinions to tell people what they want to hear. Employees see through that.
You might think waffling is an enlightened way to curry favor with all your workers. But most people respect a straight shooter.
