Here are 10 tough questions managers need to ask themselves, according to information technology executive Phil Gerbyshak on the Slacker Manager blog:

* Why am I doing what I am doing?
* Is my team still doing work that is valued?
* How does my daily work contribute to the firm's bottom line?
* How can I do more that is more meaningful to the business?
* How can I do less of what isn't meaningful?
* Is what I'm doing right now helping or hindering my team's growth?
* Is there a better way to do this task?
* How can I reward this team for doing the great work they're doing?
* What new skills do I need to learn and what skills do I need to teach my team?
* Do the right people know the value my team brings to the table?
