Seven Deadly Sins for Managers

I came across an article on FreePint intended for library managers but the advice may be applicable to anyone in an office environment. Maybe you (or someone you know) has these qualities that often aren't effective in managing staff or interacting with others:
  1. Micromanagement
  2. Lack of communication
  3. Fostering divisiveness
  4. Abusiveness
  5. Failure to listen
  6. Avoiding conflict
  7. Taking credit for others' work

Read the complete article at http://www.freepint.com/issues/050106.htm#tips for more discussion on the seven deadly sins as well as a list of Seven Desirable Strategies.
