Youâ€™re Not as Good of a Boss as You Think

I disagree with this, at least in the context of startups:
ASK YOUR EMPLOYEES HOW YOUâ€™VE HELPED THEM GET BETTER
Putting people on the spot is the best way to see if youâ€™ve made an impact. Ask employees individually to cite a specific example or strength theyâ€™ve developed based on your leadership, coaching, or business development. And look for commonalities among the team. Are they all citing the same examples? Are they struggling to give specifics? Thatâ€™s a sign you have some work to do.
I don't believe in putting people on the spot.
I don't believe in asking the people who report to me what I've done to improve them.
In general, if you have to ask, you're doing something wrong.
