So many of my clients in the corporate world complain about cold, uncaring, rigid and unfeeling managers and supervisors. Meetings designed to motivate only induce feelings of anxiety, depression and helplessness. As I listen, I too feel helpless. People cannot simply up and quit. They have bills to pay and kids to feed. Replacement job searches promise pay cuts and fewer vacation days.
So when I ran across a post on E is for Empathy about a study measuring people's ability to empathize with another person's pain, I immediately thought about cold hearted managers.
Could this needle prick test become a precursor to a corporate management fitness screening device? The smaller the wince the higher the fit?
