Stop Workplace Drama:
The 5 Traits of Authentic, Drama-Free Leaders
According to Gallup, no single factor more clearly predicts the productivity of an employee than his relationship with his direct supervisor.
When employees are asked why they left a job, the number one reason people give for leaving their job is that they had a bad relationship with their boss.
A bad boss can be bad for your health too. Workers whose bosses treat them poorly are 5 times more likely than other employees to report physical problems such as upset stomachs, headaches and sleep problems—which are going to lead to more sick days that the company is left footing the bill for.
With so much of your success hinging on the relationships of your employees and managers, what does it take to go from being a mere “manager” to being an authentic, drama-free leader? How do you strike the right balance of managing, leading, and interacting with your colleagues and employees—without getting sucked into and contributing to drama?
The person to answer that question is Marlene Chism, author of the award-winning book Stop Workplace Drama. Her signature 8-principle “Stop Your Drama Methodology” can help you and the leaders in your organization break the recurring cycle of drama in your office—and breaking that cycle can lead to:
