I came upon this item today and it stopped me in my tracks.
It read: “Punch someone in the face, you go to jail. Be a bad manager who ruins employees’ lives for years and you face no consequences. Why is that?”
It was posted on the blog of Alexander Kjerulf, also known as The Chief Happiness Officer. You can go there and give your opinion, if you like.
But before you do, read this quick account of a friend who works at a crazy-busy pediatrics office. It is a textbook case of how one manager’s poor people skills can upset and deflate years of harmony and productivity.
