Not everyone can be a good manager, it is a very serious task that requires a lot of patience, diligence, and kindness in order to succeed. Problem-solving is a big part of any managerial position, so thinking outside the box can be a helpful tool when it comes to helping your employees get out of a pickle. If you have ever been employed, you have probably had a manager. Sometimes we get lucky and have very helpful, compassionate, and capable people for managers, and other times they are anything but. Some of us have had the pleasure of having such managers in the workplace, and it can be a challenge, to say the least. Don’t get us wrong, being a manager is a very challenging position to have, but if you aren’t able to handle the pressure, you should think twice about taking such a promotion. If you don’t already have PTSD from your manager-related incidents, then come along for the ride.
Work is Life
For a lot of people, going to work can be a good, enjoyable experience. But there are many workplace-related things that can deter an employee from wanting to be there all the time. Just the fact that people have to get out of their pajamas can be enough to put someone off of wanting to go to work.
Just because you are a manager, doesn’t mean you don’t want to stay in your pajamas as well. Sure, there is an extra element of responsibility that you have over your employees that they don’t necessarily possess, but the demands on this poster are kind of intense. Why would anyone prefer to be at work and not on a holiday? Or come in early if they didn’t have to? This manager maybe needs a reality check.
