Interpreting: The GOOD BOSS - BAD BOSS Test Results
Boss & Employees don't agree.
When I tested this theory I expected it to be about 80% that
wouldn't think the fence would get painted as I've heard figures
like this bandied about in the past. (see results below ***)
I was wondering why it is better than I expected and then
realised that a decent chunk (but not all) of the people we
contacted have had coaching or have clear goals, plans or
expectations and some have excellent history for delivering on what
they said they would.
One day I might retest truly random people in the street. It
will be interesting to see if the numbers change.
What did come out of this is the SIGNIFICANT difference in
answer from bosses to employees.
They clearly have a different belief in the likelihood of things
happening as intended don't they.
Why is this?
Track record has to be top of the list one expects...
so as a boss what is your track record of insisting things
happen without compromise?
