Six Very Painful HR Leadership Lessons I Learned From My 360 Feedback — Don’t Make These Same Mistakes… | Success in HR: "’s leader. Even if you don’t deserve it. Even if your name never gets used. You get paid more. You have access to higher-level people in the company. You got there because you have the smarts and can think the big thoughts.

The other side of the coin is hanging your team out to dry when things go wrong. If you publicly crucify them for a mistake, they’ll never forgive you.

I found this article really stupid. Though it may look great to newbies, experienced managers would know that this states nothing new, and however ignore the practical problems that managers face.

Biggest pain is getting the right feedback...People just don’t give feedback because -
  1. They are afraid - u may track and persecute.
  2. They don’t care - Most have already lost hope. Don’t want to waste time.
  3. Some are immature - their feedback is kind of stupid and meaningless.
Now even after getting feedback, u can't do shit about it because -
  1. U don’t have budget.
  2. U cannot change organizational policies.
  3. U cannot always share hard realities with people.
