I speak about bad managers and toxic leaders that can serve to demotivate and create tension for employees. Most bosses will have you believe that employees leave in search of more money or simply that they are not loyal. The facts speak for themselves bad bosses, managers and line managers are the number one reason for employee dissatisfaction.
Leadership that fails individuals is costing organisations money in recruitment, training and productivity. Whats more it’s making people lives a misery by being unhappy at work

ecentstudy by CareerBuilder.com shows that a whopping 58 percentof managers said they didn’t receive any management training. Digest that for a second.

This statistic obviously unveils a harsh reality. We have a bunch of leaders who aren’t trained on how to lead.

Leave revealedthat 89 percentof bosses believe employees quit because they want more money. As much as any boss would love this statistic to be true (because it basically pardons any manager from wrong-doing) it’s simply not true. Only 12 percentof employees actually leave an organization for more money.
