The paper managers

In many companies, the role of the managers is crucial to keep the morale of the employees.

There are two kinds of managers:

A paper manager

A real manager

A paper manager is someone who doesn’t know how to do their job, or doesn’t have the right authority and privileges to do the job. This includes, have a budget for team events. Having autonomy in distributing that budget and supporting the team.

Actively working on promoting their team members.

If your manager is of the paper type, no matter how good you are, or how talented you might be, there won’t be a future for you in this company. You will stay in the same place forever.

If you have the fortune to choose between different projects or companies, take an extremely good look at the manager you will eventually get.

Otherwise, you soon might sign for quiet quitting.
