I agree with privately disciplining your employees. Reprimand them behind closed doors without the yelling and screaming.

Thanks Heather. Unfortunately I have seen too many of these kind of managers especially in the corporate world.

Bernd,

Interesting perspective. It's certainly helpful as a leader to examine not only why a particular initiative has gone awry but also perhaps what decisions you may have made in terms of assigning the right person to the right role. In fact, managers who simply look to blame may be missing an opportunity to further identify the reasons things go wrong and to make needed corrections.
