Great Expectations Are Justified.
Did you know that impatient workers have wavering leaders—supervisors who hem and haw? Study employees who don’t persevere on the job and you soon find the bottom cause: too many unnecessary checks on them. Or review the history of firms hiring secretaries on an opportunistic basis; firms that pay this one five dollars more per week than that one for the same work and length of service. You uncover much justifiable resentment. Instances like these all reflect leader’s attitudes and policies.
~ James F. Bender, The Technique of Executive Leadership (1950)
