One other thing I tend to do as a co-dependent personality type is to take responsibility for the feelings and the happiness of the people in my business. Which means that I don’t delegate well. I hesitate to ask people to take on an job that I wouldn’t want to do because perhaps it’s a little bit repetitive.
That’s the narcissistic personality type coming through as I assume everybody’s going to feel just like me. And you’ve got to realise that everybody is different. There are people who enjoy doing things where they have to tick things off a list. And they get a lot of enjoyment out of that. And I have to realise that I am not my team member in the same way that I’m not my client.
Be aware of how you react to people around you. Is it stopping you from hiring? Is it stopping you from firing? And you are not responsible for your team member’s happiness.
