Not listening to your team and evolving your culture to both ensure team happiness and business results.
Cutting back on benefits.
Lack of individual communication and engagement with your employees, instead of just an employee review once a year. Listen to their recommendations on having summer employee reviews, and ask them what motivates them and keeps them inspired! Employees rarely feel valued, and managers don't know what works best for each employee to show this.
Not appreciating the "little people". A pat on the back can make a person work harder. We get these tiny cardboard "attaboy" notes and people work so hard for such a little thing.
Having a boss and not a leader. Show your employees you are capable of leadership.
Being a boss, not a leader
Modeling poor behavior, and not communicating why things are being done or not done. People model what they see. A bad attitude is perpetuated by subordinates. And poor understanding leads to confusion and poor group direction. Why, is your north star. If you always know why you're doing something, you know where you're trying to go.
playing favoritism based on a person's background and not skill
Not being transparent or listening to your employees.
Top-down decision making.
Allowing a board to drive company decisions and hiring people that don't fit organizational cultural goals.
Defending & protecting racists, bigots, sexists, misogynists, while attacking good workers. When those backstabbing liars go down, you will go down with them & be blamed for not only covering for their behavior but losing valuable workers & making the entire company look bad. Every person that leaves due to racism & bigotry is going to tell numerous others about the way they were treated, attacked, threatened, belittled, at Century.
Lack of direction.
A leader's actions do not match their words.
Taking credit for someone else’s idea
Favoritism from management towards certain associates. Leads to dissention in the workplace.
Not walk the talk
Not addressing issues openly and quickly
