When employees have a boss that is caring, honest, supportive, and respectful, it can work all kinds of wonders on employees morale and productivity. 94% of employees with great bosses feel more passionate about their job – that’s nearly 2 times as many of those who have been working for a bad boss. Bad leadership also drives away employees.
Although the majority of employees say that their managers are good to great, but nearly 2 out of every 3 have left a job, or are planning to leave a job because of their boss – compared to a tiny 18% of those with good managers. In fact, having a good boss is so important to most people, they would rather choose a great boss over a raise in their pay.
But management should be a foundational skill, a step stool, to becoming an effective leader, but leadership requires its own faith. Being a leader compared to a manager can have many upsides that affect you and your workers.
