Reuters is reporting on a survey that paints supervisors as bumbling incompetents who have lost the respect of their workers. According to Reuters, a recent Internet survey of 2,337 people showed that less than one-third of employees believe their bosses do a first-rate job of coaching, motivating and leading. Less than half say they would volunteer to work extra time to impress their boss. Only 43 percent believe their supervisors are open to new ideas. The impending financial crisis hasn’t helped, with a growing number of people worried about losing their jobs.
Surveys like this are sometimes hard to believe – that said, I believe it. What about you? How is your boss? and how would you rank them?
