Do Others Feel Guilty?

February 27, 2009

What is your leadership style?

When someone does not do something that you want, or they do something incorrectly… do you make them feel guilty? Now I guess if you are the boss and they are paid, you have a right to make them feel bad, if that is what you prefer to do. Or maybe it is a volunteer that made a mistake or did not perform the way you would have hoped, do you make them feel guilty about it to get a better result next time? As a boss, are you across the board with how you treat employee’s or are you sensitive to how each person that works for you reacts to correction?

I heard someone say to someone else the other day “Oh you defiantly make people feel guilty” and I thought to myself is it good for a leader to make people feel guilt? Is it healthy for the boss and the employee relationship or better, is it good for the leader to volunteer relationship?  Is there a better way to lead people in the way you want them to act?

I am going to think about this and get back to you… let me know if you have any thoughts.
