I have a simple question for you:
What’s the one thing you wish your manager understood about you, which still hasn’t sunk in with him/her?
I ask because I’m giving a ton of presentations to groups of managers about happiness at work these days and I’d like to give them an even better idea of where managers and employees often don’t connect or misunderstand each other.
So what do you think? What doesn’t your manager seem to get about you? Please write a comment, I’d be very happy to know your take on this!
Great comment: Marks says “I wish my boss understood that people are not motivated by awarding them with tawdry ‘Employee of the Month’ certificates or covering the office walls with ‘Motivational’ posters but by respecting their knowledge of the job and trusting their judgement on a day to day basis.”
