Why do managers think that when they demoralize their employees, that they will perform better?
When a manager screams at their employees, nit-picks over submittals, criticize their every action, or places unattainable expectations on them, it’s not doing anyone any good.
Stress is a sensation produced by the adrenal glands to alarm our brain either to fight or flight. Stress can make a person feel like they’re in a state of attack. That they either need to confront or escape danger.
"When we feel stress our bodies release cortisol. Cortisol impairs rational thinking & decision making. In a toxic culture we are biologically more likely to make a bad decision or do something that is ethically questionable," Simon Sinek.
Research has shown that there is a direct correlation between employees’ happiness and their productivity at work.
No one has ever said that employees produce better results when they are stressed.
Maybe those managers should stop and reflect on their actions.
There’s a simpler way to produce results.
