INSECURE MANAGERS COMPETE WITH THEIR SUBORDINATES AND MAR THEIR PERFORMANCE.
People vacate companies because of the persisting poor relationship between them and their managers.
A company putting in place structures that guarantee better pay, better perks and better training for its employees, may still not be able to dispel the malcontent created by poor managers who relate ineffectively with their subordinates. A staff-turnover problem is often directly connected to the mediocre performance of managers.
By setting clear expectations, catching up with his or her people, trusting and investing in them, managers draw out a good performance from their people.
Insecure managers boastfully jaunt about, competing with their subordinates and marring their morale and productivity, instead of listening and being attentive to them.
The duration of an employee’s stay in a company and the level of her productivity are determined by the quality of her relationship with her immediate manager.
