How often have you been the target of a senior executive’s rant? Whether it’s delivered in person by someone who’s red-faced and shouting or by email with snarky threats, these attacks hurt.
If you’ve been promoted into a management position, and you feel like a fraud, it might be because you fear you aren’t ready, or that nobody will take direction from little old you. All your life you’ve probably been hearing about natural-born athletes, musicians or speakers. Where does that leave you, if you’re not a natural-born anything?
Have you ever worked for a manager who pitted employees against each other by assigning the same project to them? This behavior is a sign of a toxic work environment.
The new year is just around the corner. And you know what that means. Your team members will be making all sorts of resolutions.
