Employee Expectations

Anne Fisher of (9/8/04) asks the question, are you managing enough? According to Bruce Tulgan of Rainmaker Thinking the past couple of decades, micromanagement  defined as managing with great or excessive control or attention to detail, has fallen out of favour.

When we ask employees what they want from the people above them, the first thing they never mention is a pay rise. It's always more coaching, more guidance, clearer goals, more constructive criticism and more recognition for achievements.
