Uncomfortable Being the Boss? 5 Tips That Will Help

Uncomfortable Being the Boss? 5 Tips That Will Help | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

1. Don't pretend you're not really in charge.

 

If the buck stops at your desk, acting like you're the same as everyone else won't work. It's a bit like parents who try to function as their children's friends, rather than as authority figures. It may be more fun in the short run, but will likely lead to bad results in the long run.

 

There are a very few exceptions--one is Morning Star, the tomato processor that has rigorously maintained a non-hierarchical structure since the 1970s. But that takes a lot of forethought, planning, and careful hiring of like-minded individuals. And even so, the company's non-CEO founder must occasionally serve as decider of last resort when employees are unable to resolve their conflicts.

As companies look to level their organisational structures, negotiating will be key but it's not always recommended.

Marcellus Maxximus's curator insight, January 13, 2:32 AM

I scooped this because I think of myself as a good leader and I wanted to see what some good leaders do. And to be honest I thought in business you always had to negotiate at some time or another.

Hopefully, this flatter structure will move into public education.

The #1 Problem Every Leader Has But Isn't Aware Of | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
