Bad to Worse-6 Ways to Kill Workplace Productivity
Guest articles > Bad to Worse-6 Ways to Kill Workplace Productivity

In an attempt to increase morale and productivity, organizations will attempt anything. I recently read an article in The Wall Street Journal (http://tinyurl.com/yc76a6g) about how to liven boring meetings. Leaders allowed crayons and water pistols for creating productivity. Such rote behavior is meant for recess not productivity.
The problem with organizations today is with leaders that cannot lead and workers that have little passion. Rather than repair the issue, leaders place band-aids on surgical incisions. Fix the problem.
Productivity begins with candid relationships between employer and employee. It is imperative to note that individuals do not leave companies - they leave poor managers. To dilute the productivity impact, take time to build relationships with employees through personal interaction. Employees need candid feedback to increase morale, productivity and ultimately accountability.
