How Not to Manage

October 20, 2009

What if your boss undermined your authority by taking away a major part of your responsibilities, brought in a consultant to take over who was completely new to a situation that you were very familiar with, played games with you by not letting you know about your future, and just threw money at the problem in different directions without any cogent plan?

That’s what Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has done.  He has taken play-calling responsibilities away from coach Jim Zorn, given them to Sherman Lewis who he brought in two weeks ago (then Zorn explained the playbook to Lewis), refused to let Zorn know his job status, and threw money at high-priced players without having any plan for the future.

This strategy is not classy but more importantly is terrible for the team.
