How to Strengthen Managerial Relationships

Effective collaboration between managers and direct reports is extremely important in today’s fast-paced work environment. The distance separating managers and their direct reports can be the biggest productivity and performance drain in an organization. To promote the benefits associated with close working relationships between boss and employee, organizations need to hire, engage and retain managers who possess and exhibit the aforementioned skills.

As managers build trust with their direct reports, actively listen to their ideas and complaints, deliver feedback to them in an effective manner and master the art of holding challenging conversations, they will be well on their way to becoming strong, respected leaders.
