DO U wnat to b Manager

as published in Techrepublic.comThere is a scourge running rampant in the working world. It’s called “I want to be a manager” syndrome.This is the desire on an employee’s part of wanting a “manager” title above all else. It’s not a desire to lead a team to great things, mind you, it’s a desire to bear the manager label. Somehow these people just feel too special to be among the rank and file, despite not having any leadership skills to speak of. They’re convinced that the world just can’t wait for their ideas, even though they have no earthly idea how to turn those ideas into practical results.Here’s a news flash: General brilliance does not necessarily qualify you to lead people — leadership skills do. You may be the best developer in the world, or you may be able to diagnose any network problem in three minutes flat, but that does not automatically make you a good candidate for a manager. That’s like saying “I play a mean cello, so I should conduct the entire orchestra.” These are t…

Incompetent Manager ( 10 ways to know )

1.Bias against action: There are always plenty of reasons not to take a decision, reasons to wait for more information, more options, more opinions. But real leaders display a consistent bias for action. People who don’t make mistakes generally don’t make anything. Legendary ad man David Ogilvy argued that a good decision today is worth far more than a perfect decision next month. Beware prevaricators. 2.Secrecy: “We can’t tell the staff,” is something I hear managers say repeatedly. They defend this position with the argument that staff will be distracted, confused or simply unable to comprehend what is happening in the business. If you treat employees like children, they will behave that way — which means trouble. If you treat them like adults, they may just respond likewise. Very few matters in business must remain confidential and good managers can identify those easily. The lover of secrecy has trouble being honest and is afraid of letting peers have the information they need to …
