Join us in this episode as we delve into the world of ineffective leadership in the workplace. Our special guest, Tim Franks, the remarkable Founder and President of Tarheel Drilling & Blasting, Inc., joins the discussion.
In this explosive episode, we explore the concept of "quiet firing," a term coined to describe situations where managers fail to provide their employees with the necessary motivation, support, and training to advance in their careers. Tim Franks sheds light on how quiet firing can occur, whether it's a deliberate action or an unconscious behavior displayed by supervisors—often unknowingly. We examine instances such as supervisors withholding raises, excluding employees from crucial projects, or denying them the essential resources needed to succeed in their roles.
Both Bam Bam and Tim share their personal experiences with quiet firing in the past and discuss the profound impact it had on them as employees, as well as the ripple effects on the company's overall productivity.
Join us for an insightful deep dive into the successes and failures of leadership, and discover how to prevent the loss of valuable employees through quiet firing.
