The definition of management

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!

    You just really gave me something to think about. But where are all these distrusts really coming from? Which came first, the employee distrusting the employer, or is it the other way around?
