Are you a Boss or a Leader?
We’re moving toward final project season… fun for so many reasons! I can’t wait to see what my students have put together for their clients.
Not long ago, I was talking to one of my students and I asked her how her project was coming along.
“What’s wrong?” I asked.
“Where I work, I manage a team of 10 people and they do what I say. Here, nobody does what I tell them to do.”
I replied. “What do you tell them to do?”
“I tell them to do their jobs!”
“Wait a sec,” I started, “Are we talking about your employees or your teammates?”
“My team. I told you, my employees do what I tell them. My team does not.”
“Why do you think this is the case?”
“I wish I knew,” she lamented.
I think I knew.
Do you know?
What do you think?
