2. Your manager is turning up the heat: good senior managers will let you know when they thinks there may be a problem.
3. Allies are distancing themselves from you. When your friends stop supporting you there must be something wrong.
4. You’re behaving like more of a jerk than usual. Perhaps caused by increased stress and fatigue.
5. Your decision-making is compromised. What impact are your decisions having on results?
6. Your personal relationships suck. If you can't manage your work life then the chances are you home life is a bit messed up too.
7. Your employees are miserable. Even you should be aware of this.
