An observation after 5 years of work in different companies and hearing colleagues cribbing in various departments having varying roles:
If a boss “accepts” the “track/redline” changes a subordinate made in a document before sending it out across, he/she is insecure and probably not very confident of his/her skills. Point is – it leads to de-motivation and angst in the subordinate.
Strangely, male bosses do the above considerably less than women.
Wonder why is that?
