This is especially true when entrepreneurs believe they’re better than their underlings, a phenomenon which has been referred to as the Superman Complex. That’s when they believe they’re stronger, smarter, faster and better than his workers.

If you find that your colleagues start rolling their eyes when you get within talking distance of them, have a look at this checklist. Your Superman complex may be turning off the very people you most rely on. (more…)
