It would be great if all employees could be responsible, talented people who need very little oversight. We could give them their assignments, tell them when it’s due and move on.
The reality is quite different. Even those who are talented and responsible will most likely need training, supervision, guidance etc. If these people could do everything without the need of supervision, guidance, training, management etc, they most likely wouldn’t need to be working for you, they would be out on their own.
If you find the people you are managing lacking, before looking at what they are doing wrong, take a look at what YOU are doing wrong.
Have a great day!
