What if a High Performing Executive is Also a Bully?

Evil HR Lady

One of my employees, Katie, recently approached me with complaints about her manager, Holly. Katie told me Holly is abrasive, curses at employees in public and has gone through five administrative staff members in the past seven months because she’s intimidating and disrespectful to her team. Holly is also a high revenue manager, so my boss is asking me to look the other way and ask Katie to resign if she is unhappy. I feel that if I do this I would be breaching my moral compass.

I was promised a perk but discouraged from using it, my director plays with my hair, and more

Ask A Manager

It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go…. I was promised summer hours — but it’s frowned upon to use them. Last year, I was recruited by a manager I’d worked for in a previous company into a new role with my current company. Things are going great, and I’m really happy here.
