Companies across the United States are dealing with the “Great Resignation” now more than ever. Retaining top talent is more competitive and complicated. We all know “people don’t leave jobs, they leave bad managers”.
Since 1994, I’ve worked with and for some of the worst “bosses” on the planet. Each time their behavior was brought to HR’s attention, I was told to “just deal with it”. And I did. By quitting. I began taking psychology courses and was introduced to Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Positive Psychology.
What an eye-opener! It was then I decided the days of people just dealing with a jerk “manager” were over. I began training management teams on dealing with THEIR shortcomings. What happened next was absolutely amazing!
Employee turnover rates began decreasing by double digits! Revenues began increasing, projects were beating deadlines, and people WANTED to work at those companies!
