What kind of boss are you?

Do you - as a boss - enhance, or detract from, your employees' productivity?

If you ask this question of your employees, you might expect them to answer 'enhance' - but they probably won't.

Too many of them will see you as 'interfering' or 'meddling', confusing rather than directing them.

Does this say something about thosee employees - and their perceptions versus expectations - or about you?

This is not clear.  Probably a bit of both.  It certainly means that you need to think about how you relate to, and engage with, your employees.  If employees feel their productivity is lowered, it probably is .. indirectly rather than directly, perhaps, but lowered nevertheless.
