PostHeaderIcon TOO MANY BOSSES … WHO’S IN CHARGE?

By Vernalee

Does your job have too many chiefs?
In order to successfully operate, a company needs organization and a balance of power. It needs someone to give orders and someone to take them. Commands from multiple people who lack the authority or who are not specifically clear may present inherent problems. Conflicting directions are just as bad. Is there clarity in the organizational lines of authority?
Are the directives understandable and clearly defined/stated?
To effectively and profitably move a company forward, defined lines of authority are essential.
Someone has to do the work when the instructions are given!
An imbalanced proportion results in chaos. If you don’t believe me, look outside your office door!
