The number-one reason employees leave a company is because of poor management, period. And most anyone who’s ever worked can relate to that statement. Each time I’ve left a position, the reason hasn’t been because of low pay or poor benefits. Instead, I left because of what my manager did to disengage me.
From my experience, here are the top seven management behaviors that cause great employees to leave for greener pastures:
1. Not keeping your promises
If you aren’t keeping your promises, how can you expect those around you to keep theirs? This behavior can breed a culture that tolerates a lack of accountability within a team. And lack of accountability will lead to poor team performance. It will also decrease the trust others have for you.
2. Ignoring poor performers
Poor performers on a team can de-motivate your good and great performers. They’ll impact the work of others on the team as well as the overall success of the team. The longer you wait to address this poor performance, the higher the risk you’ll have of losing your high performers.
3. Having irregular meetings
