Why be a great manager, when you can literally be the worst. In fact, some places make it hard for you to be a good manager. So, I’m here to do you a solid favour, here are my top tips to be straight up terrible.
- Tell your team how important their ideas are to you and how much you want to talk more about it, then ghost the absolute heck out of them.
- Check your emails and answer calls when they are in the middle of telling you something they consider important. Bonus points for answering mid sentence and giving them the ‘talk to the hand’ gesture.
- When your team member tells you a great idea, tell them to get back in their box and shush. Take their great idea and sell it as your own.
- Cancel their annual leave just before their holiday because “something urgent” came up. Then go on leave yourself.
writers note: don’t do these things, if you laughed, smirked or even had a twinge of “oh yeah I know that one” then do the world a favour and either quit it or tell that evil manager where they can stick it!
