You might have observed several times, mothers start teaching do’s and don’ts to their children when they are surrounded by guests and unknown people. Most of the time child will not obey in such situations because probably he feels this is an attack on his ego and intelligence.
Similar type of scene is prevalent in corporate world also where boss takes pleasure in showing his/her authority on subordinates, in front of other colleagues. He/she will start firing and criticizing his/her subordinate in front of others and poor employee may not have any option but to feel belittle. In such type of situations, how can one expect great performance?Work might be done but employees would never be able to give their 100%.
