“People need to know how they’re doing so they can ensure they’re focused on the right things. Some managers have large teams and if they’re not even meeting with their teams on a regular basis, how do we know what those individuals’ contributions are? They could be bored out of their minds waiting to hear from the manager what they should be doing, or working really hard, but then ultimately delivering something that doesn’t go anywhere.”
