Execs Clueless as Managers Bully Workers
Bosses often rely on intimidation to get what they want from employees, according to a recent survey from LRN. The research shows that CEOs and other top executives are clueless about how little the workforce is influenced by lofty corporate-speak, which in turn leads direct managers to resort to threats as a way of driving production.
