I’ve been an employee for many bosses, talked to many managers, and have studied some management tactics. I see the biggest difference between good and bad managers is one word: trust.

Otherwise, you are the one creating unnecessary roadblocks and dropping the morale of otherwise hard-working employees.
Words mean nothing in fitness. Similarly to wanting to become a writer yet never practicing writing, you must put in the work not just for fitness but anything in life, in order to achieve the results you want. Fortunately, once you start putting in the work, it becomes easier and after a while, you can’t even imagine life without doing that work as often as you can. It’s a positive feedback loop with subtle results.
