How To Frustrate Those You Lead

If your goal is to frustrate—or even exasperate—your employees, here are thirteen ways to do it.

  1. Don’t be responsive.
  2. Cancel meetings at the last minute.
  3. Reprimand them in front of their peers.
  4. Change your mind frequently.
  5. Don’t bother stating your expectations.
  6. Always ask for what they don’t have with them.
  7. Focus on superficial things rather than substance.
  8. Assign them work, then micromanage the process.
  9. Do all the talking.
  10. Never recognize them.
  11. Catch them doing something wrong.
  12. Communicate that you are the fount of all wisdom.
  13. Be moody.

There you have it. And if for some crazy reason you don’t want to frustrate those you lead, you can just invert these suggestions and do the opposite.
