Management Hazard One
Beware of losing touch with the "real world" of your employees or team members. It's easy to get in your own world as a manager, despite constant contact with those whom you supervise because you aren't performing in their arena. No matter how good your grasp of the business, unless you determine to actively participate in the jobs you supervise, there will be inevitable losses incurred. There will be loss of communication on both ends, loss of understanding and inevitably, a loss of productivity. Avoid the trap by spending time on the job in the work area, out in the field, in the role of those you supervise.
