• They want their team to do what they are told.

• They view their team as supporting their role, not the other way around.

• They aren't investigators. They focus on feedback based on symptoms and don't work to get at the root problems holding teams and individuals back.

• They view your challenges as not significant.

• They are the wrong fit for management. They got promoted to a people management role when they are great at execution.

• Nobody helped them, they are emulating their experience.
