Tell ‘em you’ve got their backs

by on
in Leaders & Managers,People Management

When you hear the term “flavor of the month,” it means managers or rank-and-file employees were given a new set of priorities and then left alone to wander around in a fog.

Let managers know you’ll back them up—and then actually back them up.

The most important thing you can say: “I will fight for you. We may make mistakes and we may not always win, but I will always have your back.”

— Adapted from The Search for Unrational Leadership, Charles Fleetham, Right Brain Books.
