Tip of the Day: Don’t be a Horrible Boss

Failing to inspire.

Bad bosses are often described as passive or apathetic. To motivate your people, you need to bring energy and enthusiasm to work.

Not taking action on poor performance. When you accept mediocre work, it discourages productivity. Set stretch goals so you don’t inadvertently let people coast.

Refusing to set direction. Weak leaders have a murky view of the future, don’t know precisely what direction to take, and are unwilling to plan. Give your subordinates a clear path forward.
