So a supervisor looks down at the work of others and determines what’s good and what’s not. Sounds so God-like.
Words are not harmless. Quite the opposite. We make them up and then they shape us.
If you think of yourself as a “supervisor,” then you must also believe that your team needs your “guidance and firm hand.” What bullshit.
They are your peers. Adults, just like you. They have their roles. Figure out what yours really is.
Give yourself a chance to grow. Change your vocabulary.
