Work could overwhelm you
Employees may come up short
3 times you told them to get done
But again they forgot
So you’ve resort to shouting,
But are you sure that’s the best?
Let’s try something new,
Put the old employee management methods to rest.
Think we’re telling lies,
Think your management is slick?
If you still don’t believe us, then
Take a look at this infographic:
Have you been short tempered?
Put your workers on a cross?
If you’ve been breathing down their necks, here are
5 ways to know you’re an overbearing boss.
1. Raising Your Voice
Don’t be hasty now
And take a deep breath
Your employees are learning, too
In case you forget
There are other ways
So don’t be a hot head
Pull yourself together,
Be a Jedi instead
Try and be patient
You too were in their place
Employee training is tough, we know
But you must give them their space
Be cool as a cucumber
You don’t have to shout
Try talking in private, asking their problems
Getting to know them will sort it out
Put trust in your workers
They can have a lot to give
Let them be creative
Micromanagement is counterproductive.
Give them some autonomy
And you’ll be in for a surprise
They’ll bring in new ideas
To get your company on the rise.
Use your internal pool of talent
And bring out their best
They’ll stop fooling around
Give you more than you request.
3. Lack of Communication
You may tell them what to do
But this conversation is one way
Have you even stopped to hear
What they have to say?
You think you know it all,
Your business strategy is just fine?
You don’t like it when someone below you
Points out a flaw from time to time
Take their opinions in
Employees can give a fresh perspective
When your methods are old and tired
Their advice can be effective.
4. Pin Drop Silence
Do you pride in the fact that
No one speaks when you’re around?
Employees still in their seats,
Not a soul makes a sound.
I’m afraid that’s not respect, sir
No, they don’t praise your name.
They probably fear for their jobs,
Or their lives just the same.
A little friendly conversation,
Won’t hurt every now and then.
We’re not saying you need to go overboard,
Just try and be nice, my friend.
5. Good Outcomes Are Yours, Bad Outcomes Are Theirs
There is nothing more annoying
Than to have given it your all,
And not be acknowledged because
Your boss seems to overhaul.
But make one mistake, I dare you
And wait for what’s to come.
Your boss will have your throat
His own melody he strums.
Don’t be that boss we speak of
Employee appreciation is the right way.
Give credit where credit is due
And they’ll be happy, come what may.
Don’t Be That Boss Everyone Hates
So now you know what it takes,
To be the overbearing head.
Take a step back and you’ll realize
That great things lie ahead.
Instead of breathing down their necks,
Try a sneakier way…
Will make your job child’s play!
