Managers have been focusing on meeting management in recent years. They know they can improve productivity and increase employee engagement by actively managing their meetings.
How often have you been the target of a senior executive’s rant? Whether it’s delivered in person by someone who’s red-faced and shouting or by email with snarky threats, these attacks hurt.
If you’ve been promoted into a management position, and you feel like a fraud, it might be because you fear you aren’t ready, or that nobody will take direction from little old you. All your life you’ve probably been hearing about natural-born athletes, musicians or speakers. Where does that leave you, if you’re not a natural-born anything?
Have you ever worked for a manager who pitted employees against each other by assigning the same project to them? This behavior is a sign of a toxic work environment.
The new year is just around the corner. And you know what that means. Your team members will be making all sorts of resolutions.
