Bad At Being in Charge

There are people out there that just plain stink at being in charge. They have business schizophrenia, always running from one idea to the next without ever giving any one idea a chance to develop. They don’t respond to emails, and if they do, they only respond to part. When they delegate, they give way too much and then expect it done in an unrealistic timeline. They put out fires and never learn to anticipate problems before they happen. That’s not the issue though. Having a bad boss, or bad management team is going to happen. The issue is how do you identify if that person is you? What are the tell-tale signs that you’re bad at being in charge?
Here’s a short list to identify if you’re bad at being in charge:
1: It’s always someone else’s fault.
2: Your company is always putting out fires. There’s no preventative measures to anticipate or manage complications.
3: Heavy turnover.
4: Dwindling sales.
5: No one returns your calls.Being in charge should be synonymous with being critical of one’s self. If you aren’t very good at being critical of yourself, maybe you aren’t good at being in charge.
