You’re the Boss published It’s Never the Employee. “Before You Blame Your Employee, Ask Yourself Some Question” is appropriately the tagline for this article. The article talks about looking in the mirror before pointing the finger.
The bottom line? It’s never the employees who are the problem. It is the training they didn’t get. It’s the oversight that wasn’t given. It’s the lack of structure. It’s the boss who can’t let go. It’s that the wrong employee was left in the job too long. It is the boss’s responsibility. In a privately held business, it is always the boss’s fault. The boss has control.
