Negative Up, Positive Down

Is good... Is nice.

Is good… Is nice.

Far too many people hide bad news from their superiors and then don’t share¬†the credit when praise is given. The problem with this is that your manager will never trust you and your team¬†will never respect you.

Instead, share the negative news up the chain and the great news down the chain to your peers and subordinates.

One Moore Thing: If all your team hears is bad news, it will either kill their motivation or force them to see you as a complainer. In case you didn’t know, neither of those are good outcomes.
