Are you a Cliché Boss?

Tim Berry’s post about real life The Office bosses is worth the read:

“You have legions of former employees, but they rarely give your name as a reference for new jobs. Either they don't trust you to give them their due, or they worry that because they were so miserable working for you, your recollections will also be dismal.

You have legions of former employees, period. If your staff falls away like linty Post-it notes, ask yourself: Is high turnover the problem? Or am I?”

Are you a type of boss depicted weekly on national television? Is that something to aspire to? Perhaps some sensitivity training in the new year? Nah! :)
