The definition of management

dilbert20120609

According to Dilbert. Love the humour, which reminds me of a workplace culture I experienced a previous life or two ago.

No trust at all. Mind you, employee behaviours didn’t help. And leadership was dysfunctional, at best.

All a virtuous circle, though – management didn’t trust employees; employees cared little about their work because management didn’t trust them, didn’t seem to care about them… How different it all could have been.

How’s your workplace? Familiar sounding or an unrecognizable place? Ponder on that as you enjoy the forthcoming weekend!
