As a CEO or manager, how do you know that you might not be the rock star you think you are?
You’re probably not as open to information that challenges you.
I found an interesting and amusing article by Glen Hellman, Chief Entrepreneureator at Driven Forward LLC, 10 Signs You Aren’t the CEO You Think You Are.
He talks about the obvious signs like…
1) You have an open door policy but no one comes in.
2) The “we’ve always done it this way, and we aren’t changing” motto.
3) It’s everybody else’s fault that things aren’t going in the right direction.
So what is the underlying way to know, rectify or prevent a situation where your management skills are slacking?
When you work for a company whether you’re the Big Dog or the pup, every member makes up a vital part of the end mission. If you, as Big Dog don’t feel that every person is part of the team then neither will they! If you are in any position of power ask yourself, when was the last time you considered how you’re doing as a boss. If you haven’t thought about it in a while, you probably have some work cut out for yourself. Even the best bosses question their management abilities and seek new and better ways to approach and manage staff. The Big Dog should serve as a platform for positive leadership and motivation of the team, or else hire someone else to do so.
