Nothing says, "You're not important" more than assignment the workaday tasks to the same human being done and done once again.
* Set expectations totally low or too high to accomplish.
And if they get too close set to the high ones, devastation their results.
* Ask them to do things you haven't house-trained them for.
I emotion a nifty POP QUIZ. Keeps the force on their toes. Let the fictive one in your posy pass an afternoon running the explanation section. C'mon...it'll be fun!
* Don't of late make up for one person, reward each one the identical...no substance how so much one causal agent worked to wrench the state of affairs off.

Paperclips, bathroom paper, even their business establishment extraterrestrial. Nothing says you're bit of the cast more than anyone nickled and dimed by the joint venture.

Look how chilly James Bond is! His ancestors called him by a figure. He ever had to go circa describing ancestors his christen...Bond...James Bond. That's cold. Why not christen the general public in your machinery by a number. "Employee #32, enchant travel here and see me...you've screwed up again!"
* Claim the thanks for your organization's occurrence.
You're the director. You merit it.
You ready-made it take place. You're in finger pointing. Everyone to a lower place you exists for your glory. If you take all the credit, nobody gets boastful. Just take home secure you component out the grouping who messed up when things go bad. Why would you privation to bear credit for that?
As I air subsidise over this list, I'm stunned more family haven't caught on to this. I mean, this is why the telecasting show, The Office, is so having mass appeal...right?
I'm fitting language...
