How Management Mistakes Costs People

How Management Mistakes Costs People

Haha, what’s a few thousand dollars here and there? No one loses their jobs eh? comment really got to me. How we’ve acted as if there’s no consequences to our behaviors, actions, and values. This is another Dilbert Classic that’s riotiously funny but not really so funny because it hits the bulls eye and close to home.

I never finished this draft from last year and well, look at the carnage that the pointy-haired managers have inflicted, by commission or by omission. The hangover has been well documented over the past few months.

Personally for me, I’ve had good and bad experiences. One (very) bad was a business leadership training simulation* where I was the CEO and there were about 30 people “in the company” so to speak. Miserable experience by them as we in the management team were totally dysfunctional. Really learned a lot how a failure to articulate a strategy and communicate it effectively, resulted in failing to meet the business objectives, caused massive miscommunications and irritation down the ranks, and overall misery of the “staff”.

*I highly recommend checking out the good people at The Leadership Trust International and many thanks George.
