Stop Being a Manager!

Every day, you’re watching people’s time, dictating, acting as if you’re doing something important but what are you actually doing?  Leadership is about so much more than micromanaging people.  When is the last time that your own innovation/creativity/skill set has produced something great?  If you’re only riding the coattails of those working “for” you, you should probably reevaluate your capability. And I suggest you do it before they realize that you’re riding their coattails because, when they do, you’ve got a humongous problem on your hands.  Don’t start feeling yourself because your title is lofty.  You still have to work.

 

Make professional development a priority.
