Don't be the manager pushing employees out the door.
All bosses — the good, the bad and the ugly, have unique opportunities to impact the lives and careers of employees. This can be positive or negative. On the positive side, bosses can enhance skills, make daily work more pleasurable and may even find themselves the boss all future bosses are compared to. Who doesn't want to be the boss described as "the best person I've ever worked for?"
The bad and the ugly? Their opportunity is to push good talent out the door or to change and become a good boss.
As careers evolve people work in different jobs for various companies. Teenagers start with paper routes or babysitting, then move on to the front line in fast food restaurants or retail stores. As skills and preferences grow, the ultimate goal is getting to the most enjoyed or suitable job with the preferred opportunities. With the right leadership, career choices and the desire for advanced education grow, meaning every boss at every level plays a part in an employee's future.
