Going to silence:
When you do nothing about wrongs or injustice, you are part of the problem.
Top down management fosters silence. Silence breeds dysfunction. Dysfunction destroys organizations.
If you sacrifice someone just to save your behind, keep looking over your shoulder because you will probably be next.
Want to get somewhere in your career without sacrificing your principles?
• Take the time to listen. When you do speak, communicate with a caring attitude.
• Remember to give timely praise for a job well done and mentor those under you.
• As a manager your main job is to run interference and remove roadblocks for your employees. This makes their jobs do-able, boosts morale, fosters cooperation, increases productivity, and creates allies.
