- psleeman and Sam Ross: Micromanaging or "providing too much structure and control when a less directive approach is all the employee needs."
- soundscott: "Not measuring against downstream users of the intended product: Most managers come up by being 'take charge' people who can quickly make a decision and move with it. .... but does anyone follow through to see how the 'solution' actually gets used and affects the ones who asked for it?"
- dmsilva1: "Don't acknowledge your own mistakes"
- j01150126: "Having people who are specialized and competent in their original job, and using mis-logic to believe that their own personal drive will allow them to be competent in other professions they know nothing about and in which they have little or no training."
- nmasoud: "Rewarding mediocrity at the time of hiring. Hiring the wrong people, or not the right person, sends exactly the same signal as keeping non performers."
