  2. You are erratic in your behavior and decision making.
  3. You play personal favorites among employees.
  4. You try to control their behavior instead of seeking their commitment.
  5. You don’t keep your promises.
  6. You spend too much time in your own office or not in the office at all.
  7. A different set of rules applies to you vs. everyone else.
  8. You don’t trust them.
  9. You keep track of their time rather than their results.
  10. You never promote from within the company.
