21 Of The Most Insulting Things People Have Ever Heard From Their Boss

Part of making sure that your employees are motivated to give their 120% is to become the boss who encourages them. Different employers have different ways to motivate their people, but the bottom line is the same: respect them like you’d want people to respect you. Your employees are irreplaceable assets to your businesses (contrary to how some horrible bosses think!).
People on Reddit were asked to share “the most insulting thing a boss has ever said to you,” and it’s shocking. The treatment that people receive when money and the difference in hierarchy level are involved is just astonishing.
Some employers believe that they need to show a proper ‘boss attitude’ to show dominance. On the other hand, some bosses act like friends around their workers, creating a lax and comfortable feeling among employees. Which one works better in ensuring the best work performance?
The latest study that World Economic Forum recently quoted points out that moral leaderships are in high-demand. Yet, companies are not able to provide them for their employees.
This information was based on the newest State of Moral Leadership Report. The study that was based on the observation and involvement of 1,500 people that work in business points out the importance of shared values. “Managers that demonstrate higher levels of moral leadership have stronger connections with colleagues,” explains one point.
The survey results are also interestingly leaning heavily on decision makings that are based on positive shared values.
In a survey involving workers on an organizational level, 79% of respondents believe that the golden rule ‘treat others as you would have them treat you’ would lead to better decisions. Yet, the statistics show how reality is the opposite of that. The HOW Institute for Society findings shows ‘48% employees say their CEO never demonstrates moral leadership.’
