Any successful manager will agree that being surrounded by a good team is something to be proud of and anyone who has been part of a good team, will say it’s very exciting and brings great satisfaction. Having a positive experience such as this is memorable and makes one feel they are making an impact.
However, as businesses continue to deal with the pressure to provide a service or product, depending upon the style of management, this pressure (which should be a positive experience) can end up causing undue stress, be extremely demoralising and affect overall wellbeing. This is shown by over 75% of the workforce saying that their “bad boss” is the worst part or the workplace.
If you’ve ever had a good manager, you will know only too well how greatly they influence the atmosphere in the workplace and the productivity of their team – even in some of the most undesirable jobs. It can make all the difference as shown by the 65% of employees say they’d rather take a new boss than a pay rise!
