This is one of my biggest pet peeve’s when it comes to management, it seems there is a lack of Trust, this is not just based on the words that come from your mouth but your actions. If I don’t show a level of trust in the people I manage, then why would I expect them to trust me? If I don’t show through my actions that I am fighting for them, why would I ever expect them to step up when I need them too?
