Did you know that one of the top three reasons people leave their jobs is because they don't like their supervisors? When you think about it, most of us have experienced horrible bosses at some point. You think about going to work and your stomach churns and you're stressed before you enter the building. Think Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada and you get the idea.
Who are these horrible bosses and what do they look like? They're the people that expect you to read their minds because they are unable to communicate effectively, and when you can't, they take it out on you. In other words, they're setting you up for failure. Or they are the bosses whose communication skills are so abrasive that you take for granted you will be screamed at or berated at least once a day. Then there are the bosses with no planning skills, so everything is a crisis which means you have no life because you're always playing catch up. The list goes on and on.
If any of those descriptions feel familiar, you may be the reason your employees, good employees in particular, leave.
