Recently I was talking to a client who works for a very difficult boss. When the boss walks into a room or comes to the store, the ambience changes. Defensives go up and everyone walks around gingerly and tentatively as to not generate the ire or attention of the boss. It doesn’t sound like a very fun or empowering place to work.
I wonder if the boss is aware of the kind of work environment he is creating? He is constantly creating fear by looking to criticize and blame someone for the company’s woes. He loves to play the blame game and he is the only one who is playing. I wonder if he understands who’s really to blame.
