I always been a firm believer a good leader makes for a great environment. I'm not talking about the great one in charge now either. I'm talking about a leader of any business, or even household. A great leader makes all the workers under them want to succeed. It builds morale and team. It makes us want to work for you. It recognizes talent, harnesses it and leaves room for growth. Bad leaders don't make any one wanna work harder, faster, or better.
So when these guys says a phrase like "I need this done." But in a tone of command and power, that's all I hear. I do not hear it as encouraging and uplifting. Just so you leaders know. And also it's okay to praise someone for their good work instead of the first thing heard you say is criticism. That does not motivate.
