Podcast: Who You Callin’ WUSI?
The Busyness Paradox Episode #15: Who You Callin’ WUSI?, Episode Description:
An employee accuses you of being an abusive boss. Their proof? They THINK you’re an abusive boss.
Research has led many states to pass laws intended to protect employees from abusive supervisors. Sounds good, right? But who determines the difference between legitimate reprimands, constructive criticism and abuse? In this episode we discuss our largely ignored (until recently) attempt to remove some of the subjectivity and bias from this determination: a little thing called WUSI.
