Be the Boss Everyone Wants to Work For!

Posted by Ashley White on Dec 29, 2015 9:45:00 AM

Our expert management training consultants have conducted studies to determine the reasons that employees leave their jobs. Most reasons point squarely to their bosses:

  • 39% said their supervisors didn’t keep their promises.

  • 37% said their supervisors failed to give credit when due.

  • 31% said their supervisors gave them the “silent treatment.”

  • 27% said their supervisors made negative comments about them to others.

  • 23% said their supervisors blamed others to cover up their own mistakes or embarrassment.

As a result, employees reported feeling more tension, mistrust, and exhaustion, and were less satisfied and less likely to take on additional tasks or work longer hours. In other words, supervisors directly affect their employees’ productivity and satisfaction in the workplace.

There are many different behavior styles that you should be aware of as a boss, and recognizing your own allows you to adjust your behavior to meet others’ needs. Download our free Behavioral Style Guide today!
