More than two-thirds of American workers are just putting in their time at their jobs. Their lack of engagement in the job or the organization can often be attributed to their boss’s poor leadership skills. Unless managers can provide inspiration and instill dedication, productivity will continue its downward dive.
Employees who perceive that their boss is disconnected emotionally from them will themselves become disengaged and unfocused.
Join #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro and her special guest Vicky Oliver, bestselling author of Bad Bosses, Crazy Coworkers & Other Office Idiots, at 1pm ET on Wednesday, September 20, 2017, as they discuss how leaders can better engage with employees and what behaviors to avoid that create disengagement.
