Why do managers treat their employees like children—and what impact do their actions have on the day-to-day actions of those employees?
Without even realizing it, business leaders often exhibit one of two “parenting” approaches: being overbearing and authoritative, or taking the load off other people’s shoulders. But neither approach works—not when employees desire challenge and a sense of accomplishment. As a result, those employees simply won’t be able to do their best work.
In this Lightning Lesson, David Zinger and I discuss how managers can stop parenting and instead focus on partnering with their employees—and reap the business benefits of doing so.
