“The single biggest decision you make in your job — bigger than all the rest — is who you name manager. When you name the wrong person manager, nothing fixes that bad decision. Not compensation, not benefits –nothing.”
In fact, a 2015 Gallup survey of 7,200 adults discovered that about half of them had left a job at some point “to get away from their manager.” Ouch.
Not every manager is cut from the same mold. And some have no business being in a leadership role. If your office is a pressure cooker, fear is palpable, and people are walking on egg shells, look no further than who’s in charge. Their days may be numbered.
