Depressing story on the fact that managers are failing to motivate their staff. Why? because they themselves are demotivated.

Oh, it’s so obvious but why are organisations so bad at this?

1 Lack of emphasis on management skills
2 Don’t employee people (into management roles) on basis of management ability
3 Don’t design management roles to include the required amount of time to do the ‘management stuff’

Well, there are three reasons to start with . . . and they are from personal experience.
