If you ever said — “I am surrounded by incompetence.”
Worse yet – you catch yourself saying “I am surrounded by Incompetents.”
You begin your work week Sunday afternoon at 5 with a barrage of e-mails to your team.
You find yourself constantly “down in the weeds” addressing tactical issues and not focused on big picture.
You catch yourself constantly micro-managing and not delegating enough
If you are surrounded by direct reports that lack diversity – age, race, background or otherwise. That is – they are ‘copies’ of you.
You see little value in executive coaching and think it may viewed as a sign of weakness.
During meetings, you constantly check email, texts, voicemail or…whatever…on your phone.
You have found yourself setting other executives up for failure or embarrassment.
