The Biggest Mistakes New Executives Make =LINK=


"I find it very difficult to think of mistakes; not that I don't make any but because I was brought up to look only at the good things in life ... As for what lost the most money, probably Virgin Cola. It is still No 1 in Bangladesh though."

It's essential that teachers communicate their classroom management expectations to students and parents at the beginning of the school year. Ambiguous classroom policies early on can lead to aggravation for everyone throughout the year. Here are some common mistakes teachers make early on that can lead to trouble down the road.

I once had a student named Sydney who had no impulse control. She frequently yelled out insults to her classmates, and she was often rude, loud, and obnoxious. I felt sorry for Sydney because the other students didn't want to work with her, so I ignored her behavior and simply tried to redirect the class when she interfered. When Sydney finally blew up in May, attempting to physically assault another student, I realized I'd failed her and the class by waiting too long to intervene. I should have addressed Sydney's bad behavior immediately instead of letting her get away with it. It was one of the biggest classroom management mistakes of my career, but I did learn from the experience.

As a leader in the workplace, you are the decisions you make. Successful leaders act as role models and always strive to lead by example by being accountable and improving their ability to lead. They continually assess their personal performance and are willing to correct leadership mistakes and failures once identified.

Finances may not be your strong suit as a leader. The next best thing is to bring in a qualified financial expert.

The biggest problem I have encountered is that organisations send people on PRINCE2 training and then expect them to be able to manage projects. The mistake the newbie (PRINCE2 trained) project manager makes is trying to go it alone in the forlorn belief that PRINCE2 is all they need.

But we also make sure to discuss common yet costly mistakes like these, which can devastate product adoption and usage (usually without the vendor even knowing).
