"Bad Managers"

I once heard a saying, "People don't leave bad organizations, people leave bad managers." What are your thoughts? I think its possible either way it is looked at.

Managers are a direct representation of the organization, so I think these two things go hand-in-hand. A bad manager can lead to a poor view of the organization, but I don't think it can go the other way around. I think leadership style and interactions with employees are crucial to an opinion of the overall organization. If managers aren't on good terms with their employees, I think that is reason enough to want to leave the organization and label it as 'bad.'

I agree, but I would also add that a bad manager typically is not the ONLY reason for a person to leave a position. Unless the manager is creating a completely miserable environment, there has to be more reasoning behind leaving a job.

I recently came across this article: http://bit.ly/dmmcHg I wouldn't recommend telling a manager or supervisor that this is how they should manage, BUT, it is good advice.
