Benefits of Being a Kind Manager

Successful managers practice the golden rule.

And when managers treat employees with respect and decency, superior team performance is the result.

The American Management Association came out with a survey that illustrates how a boss's character affects employee performance and retention rates.

  • 84% of employees who report to 'kind' managers plan to work for their company for a long time;
  • Whereas only 47% of employees who report to bullies agreed.

Managing employee turnover - especially in troubled economic times - can be as simply as applying the golden rule.
