Top 5 Reasons Your Boss Doesn’t Apologize For Messing Up
It’s infuriating when your BOSS screws up. If YOU messed up that bad, you’d be worried about your job security and would apologize profusely for MONTHS . . . your boss just pretends it never happened.
And according to a new survey, employees and bosses REALLY disagree on how often they apologize.
Only 5% of employees say their boss always apologizes . . . but 49% of BOSSES say they always apologize. On the flip side, 50% of employees say their boss rarely or never apologizes . . . only 2% of bosses think they rarely or never apologize.
The survey also asked bosses the reasons why they might not apologize. Here are the top five . . .
51% are afraid of looking incompetent.
18% are afraid of looking weak.
18% say it’s, quote, “not necessary.”
7% say, quote, “I’m the boss, I shouldn’t have to.”
And 6% say it didn’t make sense to apologize in the situation.
