Our management team recently got back their results from the annual employee "pulse" survey and my boss specifically has been singled out as having really poor results. This annual survey measures employee satisfaction, and he scored poorly in work life balance, diversity and inclusion, being treated with respect and being fairly compensated/recognized for the work.
He's now asking for feedback on how he can improve and my natural instinct is to try and help, but here's what's holding me back:
- Boss is a High I and slightly high D, meaning he rarely lets people finish their ideas before interrupting and talking about himself.
- He's often dismissed employee feeback in the past and said whatever behaviour he was doing was correct and won't change
- Most importantly: Management Tools has been very explicit about not providing feedback to your manager (i.e: the feedback model).
For those more experienced, what have you done? Do you stay with status quo and keep your mouth shut or is his asking for feedback the exception to the rule?
