Whether employees are satisfied with their job does not only depend on their pay, the work environment and the job itself. The leadership skills of superiors also have an enormous influence on the well-being and performance of employees.
As part of Project Oxygen, a Google research team has been investigating the question of what makes the perfect manager since 2008. First, eight characteristics were identified that people in management positions should demonstrate. After these standards were implemented, employee satisfaction and the overall performance of the individual teams increased.
Now, twelve years after the start of the project, Google has re-evaluated the research results and adapted them to the company’s current circumstances. The study states that there are exactly ten things that make a good leader.
