A new study proves that being nice to employees is the best way for bosses to get the best results from them. Duh! The study was done to determine what leadership styles were the most effective to subordinates. Bottom line, if an employee perceives that their boss actually cares about them, they feel more serious about the work they do for them. Subordinates and employees shouldn’t be tools or machines that you can just use. They’re human beings and deserve to be treated with respect.
