Does management ‘suck’?
“Management is not easy. It's watching someone do a job worse than you. That’s why it sucks.” - Dasha to Villanelle
For the Killing Eve fans out there, you might remember this quote from a Series 3episode.
It got me thinking that this is probably how a lot of people think about management. And why it often doesn't work out.
But it shouldn't be this way! Your team (trainees aside) should be able to do their jobs far better than you can do them.
If your current employee is not one of them, it might be time to make a change. Never be afraid to "weed the garden".
The realisation that there are thousands of people out who can and would love do that job better than you is a truly life-changing one.
It is the key to elevating you to true leadership in your company and attaining balance between your professional and personal life.
The only jobs that you should do better than anyone else are the ones you are currently doing as part of your role as manager.
So how do you figure whether you have the right people in the right seats?
