Me: You managers take everything personally!
My bestie: Because you guys made everyone believe that we are the reason people leave.
BOOMMMMM (And you ask me why I love my savage friends?)
So this morning, I made a list of my jobs and why I left. It turned out that 75% of the time the reason for changing the job wasn't the manager. BOOM.
However, during this exercise, I remembered clearly when I left due to the management, and I had to think about why I changed the other roles.
So, maybe, it is just another myth we have fallen for, and when we reflect on our own experiences, the data don't add up.
What does your data look like?
