1. You are the bottleneck and everything needs to get approved by you
2. You are not accessible … so naturally, nothing gets approved
3. You complain that your employees don’t meet deadlines
4. You never give your employees feedback, well sometimes, kinda — you know it’s usually super vague
5. You wonder why your employees don’t come into work happy
6. You never give them any structured reviews or progress — instead, you give them more work
7. You constantly ask your employees for SUPER-long meetings with no agenda
8. Most of your decisions are made from pure emotion and you are in reaction-mode most of the time
9. When you have a small team and one decides to take a vacation — you panic and, of course, pile on MORE work

- When was the last time you rewarded them for good work?
