So good. Not just for managers. These are great questions for anyone to ask oneself:
- Are you bored?
- Do you know why?
- Can it be shifted?
A cautionary tale:
Boredom was a seed. What was “I’m bored” grew roots and became “I’m bored and why isn’t anyone doing anything about it?” and sprouted “I’m bored, I told my boss, and he… did nothing,” and finally bloomed into “I don’t want to work at a place where they don’t care if I’m bored.”
The article gives great specifics on how to uncover and combat boredom and what boredom represents: lack of belief in the team.
