Personal Consulting and Coaching

human nature

Being arbitrary and capricious generate their own problems, and are seldom part of any healthy workplace culture.
I can see how managers can come to resent, or at least view negatively, an employee’s need to be reassured, reinforced, praised, validated, or "checked-in" with and communicated with, so constantly. Since managers are usually squeezed for time themselves, their ideal employee is a self-starter who takes initiative, works fast and efficiently, doesn’t make mistakes, doesn’t need hand-holding and - above all - doesn’t take up managerial time.
