Bosses must distinguish harassment from leadership
SummaryWe tend to accept intemperate behaviour of bosses as normal but this is not alright. Leadership is different from harassment, and there are better ways of getting workers to function effectively.
In the initial years of working life, discussing bosses is like a party game where each one tries to one-up on whose reporting manager is worse. We have tried different ringtones, followed the heads-down approach, laughed at their jokes louder than they merited and cowered down in team meetings, hoping no part of the wrath would come onto us.
