If you are a leader, I bet your life is tough. Sandwiched every day between your staff and upper management on every single decision, stress is inevitable and I must admit, sometimes it can be too much to handle. I love to use this analogy to describe my position in the company’s hierarchy “I am the fillet in your Fillet O’Fish Burger. I need to make sure the top bun stays rounded and happy like the upper management but I need to make sure not to squash my bottom bun (my staff) with every top-down decision enforced.”
All these on top of being an inspiring leader, a visionary and a good boss. It is so tough, you wonder at times if it justifies the compensation you are getting. You are not alone.
So use this forum wisely to gather tips and tricks, vent your frustrations and research on articles to share with your team.
