Here is a short list of some of the pitfalls that leaders face. Especially new managers and supervisors who are transitioning from a functional role. Realize that many of the "balances" that need to be faced are different from team to team and you as a leader must practice and hone your skills to improve them.

1. Not seeing positives in others
2. Not making time for your team and providing clear and candid feedback
3. Not realizing what really motivates each individual on their team
4. Blame others for everything
5. Criticize others and the company
6. Focusing on too many things at once and complaining about being overwhelmed
7. Poorly organized
8. Either micromanaging or being too hands off
9. Balancing socializing with your employees without becoming too friendly.
10. Failure to provide and track definable and attainable goals
11. Leading by example
12. Not delegating
