Root834252ySometimes you need to throw out the garbage and start fresh.
Part of being a leader, though, is bearing responsibility for your underlings. If they don’t or can’t step up, that burden falls to you. Likewise if their training is inadequate, that’s on you. Their successes are theirs; their failures are yours.
But sometimes garbage is garbage, and it can’t help its nature — and neither can you no matter your efforts. Better to replace it. Knowing when and how to help, and when to replace is also part of management and leadership.
eo287538972yWell in French perfume is just toilet water... 😜
Ehat you still can: measure the performance of team members and reporting it to your direct manager
bzq846432y@KatatonDzsentri they know their performance is bad. They admit it. Nevertheless it's on me to deliver.
If I won't, it would be me to be blamed.
That's cool, so now the time is to escalate. If you're manager won't listen, you go above him with one level.
Root834252y@KatatonDzsentri or leave!
if you can’t improve your situation, find a better situation.
Omnisus4172y@bzq84 fun fact, skatole has jasmine odor in low concentrations but in higher it has smell of mamalian shit.
@Root very true. As I said already under a different rant: life is too short to spend it on a shitty job. An advice though: look first, resign after :)
What is thin line between:
- "being a leader" and "helping others succeed" and "making team working together"
- having to get shit done myself because team can't reliably deliver even basic tasks, and ultimately managers expect you to make "the team" shit done
IMO these are 2 different things. Complete opposite. Like snow vs fire. Like shit vs parfume. Yet my manager see it as almost same thing.
