employee engagement, Jim Woods, Leadership, Ken Blanchard, Ken Blanchard Company

What leads to employee and customer disengagement is a hierarchical management style that subvert creative thinking. The more top down the organization becomes the greater the risk of large, calamitous decisions. As decision become more important the ranks of those who challenge the decision maker shrink.

When decisions are made by those at the peak they are often unworkable on the real world realities on the ground.

Certainly the pompous arrogant manager who instills fear among employees is a concern. The real problem is the menagerie of layers upon layer of bureaucracy lovingly termed “processes” and safeguards. They impede and skew decisions.

Leading to disempowering employees and disconnected customers who migrate elsewhere.
