  1. Micro-management. Painful distrust of leaders to their subordinates leads to the fact that they begin to control their every move. They underestimate their capabilities and thus insult the workers, not to mention the unnecessary expenditure of its own time.
  2. Choosing the wrong style of communication. Some managers somehow believe that because they are the leaders, and the tone of communication with subordinates needs to be condescending-it’s imperative. Obviously, they forgot that the age of kings is long gone, and excessive aggression and desire to show their strength to anything good does not.
  3. Management through intimidation. This is one of the worst managerial mistakes. They somehow believe that if to intimidate employees – they will work better. What they don’t understand – is that under constant pressure, employees simply lose all interest in work.
  4. The inability to put yourself in the shoes of the employee. A good leader should always be able to look at the situation through the eyes of the employee. Unfortunately, not everyone does it.
  5. Inaccessible to subordinates. Some leaders literally build a stone wall around his person, and to reach them the ordinary worker is completely unrealistic.
  6. Lack of motivation of employees. A leader must be an example. Looking at him, all the other employees in the company should feel inspired and move forward.
  7. The lack of a clear “picture” – transparency. Often, the Manager gives a subordinate a mission without explaining to him how this will affect the overall “picture” of the company. The good leader must always remember that his employee has the right to understand how his little “slice” of the tasks will affect the overall performance of the company.
  8. Fear for their own position. Some heads do not take appropriate help from peers and subordinates because you feel not safe in his position. They believe that if someone will help them carry out their work, it is grosicki their warm place.
  9. Trying to be good friends with subordinates as well as attempts to dissociate from them. Perhaps this is the most difficult part of managing people, because in each case it will be extremely difficult to find a balance. After all, as excessive familiarity and a desire to create business relationships exclusively in what good does not result.
  10. False promises. Trying to motivate people, some managers give false promises, which is absolutely unacceptable for leaders. This not only demotivates the employee, but may eventually have a negative impact on the company as a whole.
