The pandemic has clearly exposed the problems of bad management like no other change in workplace history. While some organizations responded with flexibility and empathy, others moved towards electronic monitoring, distrust, and debilitating micromanagement. Stop that! In this presentation, Kowalski highlights bad management techniques and workplace trends that need to die. (Seriously - step away from that meeting.) Bad management damages team cohesiveness and productivity while leading to low morale and unnecessary workplace trauma. These burdens impact everyone in an organization but minority populations shoulder most of the stress. Kowalski discusses how bad management happens and will provide ways to respond when it appears. Session attendees will learn methods to evaluate their own management and to improve supervision, evaluation, and organizational culture. The session will provide advice for employees to respond to bad management in their own organization through clear communication and respect. Finally, Kowalski will discuss how managers can help their teams recover from past bad management to get back on track as an effective team.
