According to a global study by The Potential Project, 77% of leaders believe they’re doing a great job; and yet 65% of employees said they’d forgo a payrise to see their leader fired. Yes actually fired!
Well, times like these try us all, including and especially leaders.
I bet you’ve recently had a bad boss moment haven’t you?
Of course you have and here’s why:
- These are stressful times – and there will be more to come.
- Moments like these make us feel like our back is against the wall – we feel defensive, anxious or scared – and it often shows.
- The thing is we’re all feeling the same way. So you’re likely to spark each other off and you’re likely to deflect or apportion blame – which often travels upwards.
