Think Before You Praise, Apologize or Reprimand.

Here are some actual quotes from real managers at some of the nation’s largest companies:


“We know that communication is a problem, but the company is not going to discuss it with the employees.”

“This project is so important we can’t let things that are more important interfere with it.”

“Doing it right is no excuse for not meeting the schedule.”


Sure, we managers say some pretty dumb things on occasion. All of us do. But being a leader means that it doesn’t happen often. With that in mind, here are three times when it really pays dividends to invest some forethought before engaging with an employee: when you praise, when you apologize, and when you reprimand.
