One of the reasons launching a startup appeals to a lot of people is that being your own boss--and the boss of others--is a lot more appealing than than being an employee.

 

But just because you're the boss doesn't mean the problems go away. In fact, there seem to be more--clients, employees, investors, regulations--and sometimes, the biggest problem is you. Here are a few ways to tell if some of your so-called problems could easily be fixed by changing your behavior and attitude.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

As I read, I thought the points applied well to school. The managers I worked for did not want teachers to have opposing view. When I retired, I was told not to tell anyone. I told who I wanted to and my employer was one of the last to be told. There is a culture that insists on dependency in schools that is not healthy
