Is Your Small Business Suffering Because You Are a Bad Boss?
No one can understand the stress and frustration of building a business unless they’ve been there. Even your employees who work in the trenches with you daily can’t comprehend the amount of tension, concern, sometimes even fear you experience when it’s your tush that's on the line. Believe me I know!
The high-level of stress entrepreneurs deal with, however, often precludes them from seeing how they interact with their team members. Intensely focused on building the business, small business owners may let their people-skills unintentionally slip resulting in behaviors that cause them to be a bad boss. If you’re a bad boss, not only do your employees suffer, but so does your business.
Now are you starting to think about how your team might describe you? Good. I’ve put together a list of bad boss behaviors so you can see if you’re guilty of being a bad boss.
A great team is a valuable small business asset. Make sure you’re a great team leader. Don’t let your small business suffer because you’re a bad boss.
