Bad Bosses, Crazy Co-Workers and Other Office Idiots: A Survival Manual for the Workplace
This episode of Enterprise Radio is working in association with the Author Channel.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Vicky Oliver discuss the following:
- Tell our listening audience a bit more about yourself.
- So, what are the keys for how companies should better engage workers in the big picture of each task or project?
- Tell us what principles of common business decorum most apply to people in leadership roles?
- Now here’s a topic that makes most people cringe. Tell us how micromanaging leads to costly employee disengagement?
- What are the short- and long-term benefits of letting people fail?
- So, what have you found to be the things that keep employees interested and concerned in their jobs? And are these things commonplace in today’s work world, or coveted by a few, select companies?
- This is something I personally can’t stand. If people tell me they’re going to do something, I expect them to follow-through. So what are the expected business outcomes when leaders flounder on their position and not make good on their promises?
- So this is something we talked about a few months ago on #WorkTrends. Empathy seems to be rather hot topic for people interested in workplace culture. So tell us why empathy should be considered a strength, not a weakness?
- You talk about how leaders need to develop a reputation for reasonableness. What does that mean?
