Things I Learnt The Hard Way - Don't Confuse Hero Project With Hero Syndrome2019-07-25 #books #things i learnt #personal #hero syndrome
Someone that suffers from Hero Syndrome will claim that things won't work unless they are carefully watching over everything.
I've seen this at least two times in my professional life. Usually, those people are actually doing so much micromanaging that they are not other realize when things are in trouble.
I've even seen someone doing a poor job on their job, so things would break and then start calling people out that he had to fix it 'cause nobody would.
Don't do that.
I know you can get frustrated when you're the only one realizing things are breaking apart, but you can add some monitoring to your project, asking your manager to show your solution -- you can even mention it on your group/daily stand up meeting -- and pointing out to people how to realize when your project broke. Suddenly, people will realize how to monitor theirs too.
